At a minimum, your perimeter firewall must efficiently inspect every byte of every packet to provide the deepest level of network protection. In addition to this essential function, your firewall may also provide application intelligence and control, traffic visualization, and VPN services to support encrypted site-to-site and remote user access. Over our history we have deployed, configured, and upgraded hundreds of firewalls from virtually every manufacturer.

NIS facilitates Cisco Identity Services Engine (Cisco ISE)

NIS facilitates installment of Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE), a next-generation network administration tool that lets you create and manage access control policies of all the digital devices within your network infrastructure. Cisco ISE is especially useful for enterprises with a diverse range of devices within their network.

Cisco Identity Services Engine’s Importance

Cisco ISE lets you have total control of your network through profiling, posture assessment, authentication and policy enforcement. Such unified control not only streamlines all the operations but also enhances your network infrastructure’s security by providing real-time information from all end points connected within your network. Cisco ISE also lets you grant quick and limited access of your network to any numbers of guests (partners, customers, etc.) at any time. Cisco ISE is a key part of the Cisco TrustSec solution and Cisco SecureX architecture.

Why NIS for Cisco Identity Services Engine

Our Cisco Premier Partner certification is just the beginning of giving you the peace of mind that you are choosing the best partner for architecting and adopting Cisco Identity Services (ISE). NIS is also a Cisco ISE ATP Certified Partner – an invitation only program (ATP- Cisco Authorized Technology Partner). Cisco ISE is a very flexible solution and can be easily configured in any Microsoft environment, whether it’s Microsoft Active Directory (AD) or Microsoft Windows Server.

Cisco ISE and Mobile Device Management (MDM)

With the ever growing trend of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) within enterprises, and most devices under this trend being mobile devices; security validation and access policy enforcement has become even more necessary. Cisco ISE Integration with Cisco Mobile Device Management (MDM) assures total control in a BYOD environment with necessary insight into the posture of mobile devices.
