"I like the guest access feature, which has been important for us."
"The WiFi portal in Cisco ISE is very useful for WiFi customers."
"So far, we have had no issues with the stability."
"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."
"It has all of the features available, in fact, more than what you need."
"The most valuable feature is the ASDM - the user interface makes it very easy to configure the firewall."
"The features that do work, work well, and we use it on a daily basis."
"The interconnection with the ecosystem and the ability to force rules all over the network are the most important features."
"Comprehensive coverage of the required features for the PAM solution."
"The solution could be more secure."
"It is a good product, but in order to use all of the functions of the product, you must have a good understanding of the product. You must know how to use and manage it. It is a little bit complicated to configure and manage. It must be simplified to make it easy to manage for end users. In the initial stage, we found ISE complicated for end users. It was not easy to manage it or to write authentication and authorization protocol. They must improve its management and make it easy for end users. The monitoring and reporting capabilities can be improved because end users want to quickly see what is happening in their network. There were some restrictions in working with other vendors. It should also have a better and easy integration with other vendors."
"In an upcoming release, the solution needs to be more agentless and more independent. Additionally, there could be improved integration with other next-generation solutions, such as Palo Alto, Fortinet, or Check Point."
"The installation is not straightforward, it took us approximately one month."
"The interface could be more user-friendly and the ability to apply rules to MAC addresses, for example, if I wanted to allow a certain MAC address access at a particular time I cannot make this adjustment."
"Deploying to a machine, as opposed to a dedicated appliance, can be a bit difficult."
"In the next release, I would want to see this kind of solution in the cloud as opposed to on prem because when enhancements are made to the software, if it's in the cloud, it's overnight. I mean you're not going to have to respin the servers that the license sits on, it's all microservices kinds of things in the cloud. That would be my recommendation. If I'm a customer, that's what I'm looking at - for cloud based software subscriptions."
"Segmentation can be improved."
"The management console could be improved."
