Australian IT infrastructure solutions provider, UXC Connect, has achieved Identity Services Engine (ISE) Authorised Technology Partner (ATP) status from Cisco to support the expanding role of access control solutions.
To achieve the status, UXC Connect was required to fulfil the training requirements and programs prerequisites to sell, deploy, and support Cisco ISE offerings.
Cisco ISE is a contextually-based access control solution that offers visibility and control designed to ensure a secure enterprise and enforce security policy across an entire distributed network.
It provides authenticated network access, profiling, posture, guest management, monitoring, reporting, and troubleshooting capabilities through one physical or virtual appliance.
“Our expertise with Cisco’s ISE will allow UXC Connect to help its customers address [BYOD] security challenges, while at the same time creating a platform that will drive the productivity benefits and opportunities that BYOD can create within an organisation,” UXC Connect marketing director, Iggy Pintado, said.
According to UXC Connect mobility solutions business manager, Denise Carson, the types of security risks threatening the enterprise are fundamentally the same, although mobility has added new twists. These include policy enforcement, endpoint ownership, and wireless or wired network connections.
“Security considerations are paramount in any enterprise mobility strategy and program,” Carson said. “UXC Connect will leverage Cisco’s ISE to provide our customers with exceptional visibility and control over the activity of the network users accessing physical or Cloud-based IT resources and to ensure highly secure access from any device.”
