Allowing only authorized devices to connect to a corporate network while still maintaining operational efficiency is tough. This course will teach you how to use Cisco ISE to implement 802.1X to ensure only authorized devices connect to your network.
Only allowing authorized devices access to a network is challenging enough, but ensuring appropriate device access while still having operational efficiency is even harder. In this course, Cisco Core Security: Secure Network Access Using Cisco ISE, you'll gain the ability to leverage Cisco ISE to implement 802.1X. First, you will learn the foundational information needed to understand 802.1X. Next, you will discover how to configure Cisco ISE to support your devices and apply the correct policy to them. Finally, you will explore how to configure Cisco switches to support 802.1X and MAB. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of implementing 802.1X with Cisco ISE needed to ensure only authorized devices connect to your network.

Course Overview Hey everyone, my name is Craig Stansbury, and welcome to my course, Cisco Core Security: Secure Network Access Using Cisco ISE. I'm a network security consultant for my company, StansTECH. Did you know that Cisco ISE is still a leader in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Network Access Control; and in this course, we're going to leverage Cisco ISE in order to implement 802.1X to secure our network. Some of the major topics that we will cover include foundational knowledge of 802.1X, configuring Cisco ISE to only allow authorized devices under the network, and configuring network access devices to communicate with ISE for authentication and authorization of endpoints trying to connect to the network. By the end of this course, you'll have the knowledge necessary to secure your networks using 802.1X and Cisco ISE. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with network security fundamentals. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into Cisco network security with courses on describing and configuring VPNs, endpoint protection and detection, and network security with Cisco ASA. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about Cisco ISE and 802.1X with the Cisco Core Security: Secure Network Access Using Cisco ISE course, at Pluralsight.
