Farmington Hills, MI (PRWEB) March 20, 2012
To support the expanding role of access control solutions that leverage the intelligence of the network, Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, announced today that it has achieved Identity Services Engine (ISE) Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status from Cisco. This designation recognizes Logicalis as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco ISE products and solutions.
The Cisco ISE platform is a comprehensive, next-generation, contextually-based, advanced access control solution that offers exceptional visibility and control ensuring a highly secure enterprise and efficient enforcement of security policies across an entire distributed network. The Cisco ISE offers authenticated network access, profiling, posture, and guest management along with monitoring, reporting and troubleshooting capabilities on a single physical or virtual appliance. The Cisco ISE enables scalable and flexible enforcement mechanisms leveraging existing identity-aware network infrastructure, and ships on a wide range of physical appliances with different performance settings to address multiple deployment requirements.
“Security is one of the most talked about issues among IT pros today – increasingly so as companies work to provide BYOD-friendly environments – and at Logicalis, we have a team of highly skilled and dedicated security experts ready to assist with the most detailed and stringent IT security plans,” says Bob Hankins, vice president, Communications and Collaboration, for Logicalis. “Cisco’s ISE ATP designation is yet another way to showcase our expertise and to give our mutual customers a benchmark by which they can gauge Logicalis’ capabilities when it comes to designing secure IT infrastructures.”
The Cisco ATP program is part of the go-to-market strategy for Cisco ISE solutions. The program helps define the knowledge, skills and services that channel partners need to successfully sell, deploy and support ISE solutions.
