Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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.""The feature that I most like is that it can notify me whenever someone plugs in their device, which is not allowed. I get notifications for new laptop devices. I think the user interface looks good compared to previous versions.""The solution cuts down on the repercussions of getting malware or ransomware.""The implementation is very simple.""The user experience of the solution is great. It's a very transparent system."

Cons
"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.""The software is a little bit complicated to understand in the beginning, meaning the implementation. It needs proper documentation so that we can understand the options more easily.""The solution can lag somewhat as we have a large database.""The web interface needs improvement. The new web interface that they have is not as easy to manage and we find it to be very slow.""I'm working from China currently and the only real issue is that, within the country, there's some concern around Cisco and its ability to offer the solution for the long term. As the United States has banned the Huawei version in their country, we feel there may be retaliation in ours and Cisco will get banned as a countermeasure from the government. The future of Cisco in China is in question. Our local partners are worried about the situation."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."
