Implementing and Configuring Cisco Identity Services Engine (SISE) v3.0 is a 5-day Cisco ISE training program that discusses the Cisco Identity Services Engine, an identity and access control policy platform that provides a single policy plane across the entire organization, combining multiple services, including authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA), posture, profiling, device onboarding, and guest management, into a single context-aware identity-based platform. This CCNA course provides students with the knowledge and skills to enforce security posture compliance for wired and wireless endpoints as well as enhance infrastructure security using the Cisco ISE. Nobody delivers this course like WiFi Training and our network of partners. WiFi Training owns our own SISE labs, and offers rack rentals to other authorized Cisco partners for this course. Our datacenter is located in Central Texas, with easy connection options to labs. Every instructor we have who delivers this course has done countless ISE deployments in the field before being allowed to teach the subject matter to students. Our team members were some of the first to deploy ISE 2.3/2.4 into production, and integrate with Stealthwatch, and Cisco DNA. WiFi Training believes the right instructor can be life changing as well as provide a massive ROI for our clients. Want to ensure this is the best course for your business?
