When it comes down to the decision of picking between network security or innovation it can seem like you are stuck between a rock and a hard place. You may feel like when you allocate your time, IT resources, and money to one, you are taking away from the other. 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 if I told you that you don’t have to choose?

You can have the best of both worlds with Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE). Your network can be innovative and secure as you gain greater visibility and more accurate device identification and construct a software-defined segmentation policy to contain network threats. ISE allows for network remediation, visibility, and control- so you can spend time innovating with the peace of mind that segmentation and policies are in place.

But here is where you do have to make a choice. Deploy ISE yourself or get a helping hand?

A successful and quick deployment can be the determining factor between happy or frustrated IT staff, employees, and customers. Cisco Services provide expert assistance to develop implementation plans and to validate, migrate, and integrate new technologies in your network. Using industry best practices, the ISE deployment services team can help you save time, money, and resources.

Here are some tips to keep in mind when thinking about how you will deploy a secure network access solution.
