We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Visitors can be granted access to the wifi network using their cellphones, notebooks or tablets in a very easy way. The ease of accessibility that anyone can have to the network is very quick and is a big improvement in our network."
"In terms of scalability, you need to factor in your licenses. With a virtual platform, the scalability is more than sufficient. We have over one thousand users."
"We found that the most valuable features associated with this tool are posture assessment, policy management, VLAN assignments, guest assignment, and BYOD services. In addition to these services, the Cisco IOS software switch configuration feature is another very valuable aspect of the policy and compliance solution."
"The best feature of the Cisco ISE platform is that it is compatible with Microsoft products."
"Easy to use and provides good support"
"The biggest value of ISE is that it can get so granular with gaming systems, versus IoT and BYOD."
"Using this solution gives us the ability to allow proper access to the network."
"The features that do work, work well, and we use it on a daily basis."
"Even without any customization, if you install it, configure it, it's ready... It's very powerful. Without any customization, it starts working."
"The company policies feature is really good because in workflows you can check whether the policies are all working."
"This solution has helped to increase employee productivity when it comes to provisioning users in our systems. This solution has been really been effective with our retail workers. It wouldn't be possible to onboard and manage our 40,000 store employees without it. The management of the solution is pretty automated."
"It's a huge toolkit, and you can do a lot of stuff with it. You can extend nearly everything, so if you want to build something that may not have been though of by the vendor. Compared with other distributors who design their products to certain specification, you can put in your own processes, because not all companies function the same. You can write what you want, and the process should be like that."
"With this product, we been able to bring together HR, IT, and lifecycle management. It is very helpful for managing the Joiner/Mover/Leaver process. We also use it for compliance on all the audits which are around."
"The tool is like a big Lego in which you can use the parts that make sense for your organization."
"For the recertification and segregation of duties, it's easier to know all the information about our employees. If we need to delete some information, we can do it from a central point, then it can be deleted on all our searches. This is very good for GDPR."
"We no longer keep users who shouldn't exist."
"There should be an easier way to do the upgrades. There are a lot of steps to get to the next version from the previous version which ends up being a bit of the headache with the upgrade."
"There can be a little bit more integration between the controller management and ISE. There are two dashboards, you have the controller dashboards, and you have the ISE dashboard it would is a way to maybe integrate that into one. That would be great. It's not that bad. It would be easier if it could be combined into one dashboard."
"There are issues with respect to the posture assessment function. It's been observed that customers are not receiving total access to the network because the assessment agent is glitchy and malfunctions from time-to-time. I would like to see refining of the compliance assessment and adding more detailed compliance of endpoints on the user end."
"Cisco ISE is complex. The deployment and design of networks with it is so complex. If it could change it would be better."
"An area that could be improved is the agent. The challenge now is that agent and most of the computers have changed. They could think about agent-less deployment."
"I'd like to see an easier way to upgrade to larger versions, as well as more best practices that are easier to locate on their support page."
"There should be a single button that can be pressed to dismiss all of the alarms at once."
"The interface is not very user-friendly and it is not simple to use."
"One Identity has a self-service portal but many customers need a helpdesk where they can go in and request. To make that happen we need to do a lot of customization. Maybe that could be improved..."
"They could make the product more user-friendly. It takes a lot of work to build technical and business cases with the product. The solution is more complex than you think to use."
"They could improve the support. Sometimes, you make a service request and don't get an answer. Then, sometimes, we don't get a response that we want, and it's frustrating."
"The technical support is non-existent. It is not worth talking about."
"The product is quite scalable, except for the database which is not highly available. This is where scalability could be improved."
"I would like to have more extensive out-of-the-box reports."
"The initial setup was quite complex because you run into some existing policies that the company already had. There was some trouble with some inconsequential policies."
"It would be nice to have more functionality in terms of connecting SAP systems, provisioning user accounts through SAP systems, and provisioning additional attributes."
"The SMARTnet technical support is available at an additional cost."
"For the Avast virus scan, we pay around USD $95 per machine for five years which includes all updates and technical support."
"The price for Cisco ISE is high."
"The price can be lower, especially for subscriptions. It should be a lot cheaper to have a wide range of customers. The price should be comparable to competitive products like Forescout or Fortinet FortiNAC. Forescout is cheaper for customers looking for a cloud solution."
"There are other cheaper options available."
"The price is okay."
"I think licensing costs roughly $2,000 a year. ISE is more expensive than Network Access Control."
"I think the price is okay."
"There are old processes that are really great for some people and look like pieces of artwork. However, the maintenance of them is really expensive."
"The solution is flexible, in general. You can define the parts of the solution that you want to use, and it won't affect the price."
"We have the premium support and are very satisfied. They are always answer our questions very quickly. For the moment, we are very satisfied, but I think it's because we are paying for the premium support."
"It helps us save on licenses for applications because we are following the account lifecycle, as well as account reactivation."
"We are paying for premium support, which is expensive. However, we do receive very good, fast support."
"It needs flexibility in the licensing or packaging, because you buy the entire package at once, and sometimes the customers are a bit overwhelmed with whatever they get. I would like if they could cut the licensing or packaging into somewhat smaller things."
"It has helped to reduce customer costs."
"We are using a self-built solution. It would cost too much to get that up to the standard of what we need. In the long-term, it is cheaper to buy a solution that has what we need. Though, we are still running the previous solution, as we are still in the implementation phase."
