Data#3 has become the first ANZ partner to achieve the Cisco Identity Services Engine Partner Certification.
The certification recognises the ICT company has fulfilled the training requirement and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) products and solutions.
Achieving the partner certification required training and exams for sales, solution specialists and deployment specialists to ensure that Data#3 staff understand the value this technology provides and can clearly link customer business requirements to both architectural designs and the technologies required to deliver tangible benefits for customers.
The Cisco ISE platform is a comprehensive, next-generation, and context-based access control solution which offers visibility and control to optimally secure enterprise networks and efficiently enforce security policies across geographically distributed environments.
Data# Group General Manager, Laurence Baynham said the achievement reflected Data#3’s ability to respond to customer demands through its investments in the development of highly secure network solutions.
“Cisco's ISE is an enforcement platform which will help our customers manage the issues created by the explosion of end-user devices, such as iPads, tablets and smart phones on their networks, without compromising their corporate security policies," he said.
It enables scalable and flexible security policy enforcement through leveraging existing identity-aware network infrastructure and can be delivered through either logical or physical appliances to address customer deployment requirements.
