The impossible choice:
Security or innovation

The best security in the world won’t matter if you aren’t getting ahead of your competition. Then again, all the newest innovations won’t help if you’re fighting security breaches. It’s a catch-22. What’s more important?
Choose one.

Security

Innovation

With the right services, you don’t have to choose.
Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) provides security and support for business innovation. But that’s only half of the story. Because when your ISE deployment goes as planned, you can have that key element—time—to drive innovation and security throughout your business. How you deploy ISE will determine how much time you gain.
How will you deploy ISE?

Flying solo

You’re your own A-Team. Here are some tips to help you get ISE deployment started on the right track.

Start out right.

It’s tempting to start your initial deployment with temporary values for configurations. Don’t. Changing them later will cause big delays and time-consuming reworks.

Optimize your profiles.

Profiles eat up a ton of most resources. Take the time to make sure each profile has an attribute list that’s just the right balance of need versus efficiency.
