Course Description

Implementing and Configuring Cisco Identity Services Engine (SISE)

The Implementing and Configuring Cisco Identity Services Engine (SISE) v3.0 course is an intensive experience with enhanced hands-on labs that cover all facets of Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) version 2.4. The training provides learners with the knowledge and skills to enforce security compliance for wired and wireless endpoints and enhance infrastructure security using the Cisco ISE

This course is one of the concentration electives you can take to certify for the CCNP Security Certification. To complete CCNP Security you will need to pass the Implementing and Operating Cisco Security Core Technologies (350-701 SCOR) exam or its equivalent.

This course prepares you for the Cisco Certified Specialist - Security Identity Management Implementation Certification.
