Annese & Associates, Inc. is pleased to announce that the company has successfully completed the prerequisites and criteria set forth by Cisco to achieve Identity Services Engine (ISE) Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status.
“Obtaining the Cisco ISE ATP demonstrates Annese’s willingness to invest in the necessary personnel and training requirements to effectively sell and deploy products in the emerging 802.1x policy market, with the goal of growing TrustSec or ISE sales and services,” said Jamie Aiello, Director of Operations and Business Development at Annese.
The ISE platform is a security focused solution, specific to wired and wireless networking, which offers exceptional visibility and control to ensure a highly secure enterprise. This achievement further crystallizes Annese's expertise in the Virtualization practice area specifically as it relates to BYOD (bring-your-own-device), a growing trend in today’s working environments, which has led many companies and school districts across the country to reap significant cost savings in terms of infrastructure and energy consumption.
ISE allows customers to develop and implement strategies associated with securing and managing BYOD successfully across an entire distributed network with authenticated network access, profiling, posture, and guest management. Monitoring, reporting, and troubleshooting capabilities are available either on a single physical or virtual appliance enabling scalable and flexible enforcement mechanisms which leverage existing identity-aware network infrastructure.
