SISE - Implementing and Configuring Cisco Identity Services Engine v3.0 Course

SISE - Implementing and Configuring Cisco Identity Services Engine v3.0 Training Course

Course Description:

The SISE-Implementing and Configuring Cisco Identity Services Engine v3_0 course is a 5-day course that is an intensive experience with enhanced hands-on labs that cover all facets of Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) version 2.4. The course provides students with the knowledge and skills to enforce security compliance for wired and wireless endpoints and enhance infrastructure security using the Cisco ISE.

In this course, students will learn about the Cisco ISE, a next-generation identity and access control policy platform that provides a single policy plane across the entire organization. The ISE combines multiple services including authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) using 802.1x, MAB, web authentication, posture, profiling, device on-boarding, guest services, and VPN access into a single context-aware identity-based platform.

This course will enable students to:
  • Configuring fundamental elements of ISE
  • Securing identity-based networks using 802.1X for both wired and wireless clients using Windows 10 and Apple iPad endpoints¬†
  • Integrating the Cisco Virtual Wireless LAN Controller (vWLC) with advanced ISE features
  • Using the following advanced features of Cisco ISE:
    • Active Directory Integration
    • Policy Sets
    • EasyConnect
    • EAP-FAST with EAP Chaining
    • BYOD
    • AnyConnect 4.x Posture Module for LAN and VPN compliance
    • TACACS+ Device Management
    • TrustSec Security Group Access

This course includes 30 Cisco e-lab credits. Your e-Lab credits are good for 90 days after your course ends and can be used for additional practice on the course you just completed or to explore technologies from other courses in the Global Knowledge e-Lab portfolio.

This course includes Cisco Training Exclusives

Accelerate your Cisco learning experience with complimentary access to the IT Skills Video On-Demand Library, Introduction to Cybersecurity digital learning course, course recordings, IT Resource Library, and digital courseware.
