What is Network Access Control?
Network access control (NAC) is a comprehensive network security system that regulates and manages user and device access to an organisation’s network resources.
Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) is the industry’s leading NAC solution. ISE ensures authorised users, devices, and applications can connect to the network while blocking unauthorised access attempts. NAC operates through policies and authentication methods that validate users’ identities, assess connecting devices’ security posture, and enforce access privileges based on predefined rules.
Cisco ISE Features and Benefits
Cisco ISE enforces network access policies based on user identity, device type and security posture, ensuring secure and compliant network connectivity.
Cisco ISE provides secure access control by verifying user identities, and authenticating devices via protocols such as 802.1x to prevent unauthorised network access.
Rapid Threat Containment
Cisco ISE can integrate with other security solutions to rapidly contains threats by dynamically updating access policies and isolating compromised devices.
Zero Trust Network Access
Cisco ISE plays a key role in Zero Trust by continuously verifying user and device identities, ensuring secure network access based on trust and policies.
Cisco ISE can now be deployed as a cloud-native solution in AWS or Azure, with access policy enforcement now linked to Microsoft Entra.
BYOD and Guest Enforcement
Cisco ISE enables secure BYOD and guest access by validating user identities and applying policy-based controls to protect the network.
