Cisco ISE manages role-based security policy. It simplifies network-access delivery across wired, wireless, and VPN connections. ISE then integrates, consolidates, and automates the sharing of user and device data with other Cisco security and technology partners. This dynamic network access control improves IT operations as well as stopping and containing threats. As the modern network expands, the complexity of marshaling resources, managing disparate security solutions, and controlling risk grows as well. The potential impact of failing to identify and remediate security threats becomes very large indeed.  A different approach is required for both the management and the security of the evolving mobile enterprise. With superior user and device visibility, Cisco ISE delivers simplified mobility experiences to enterprises. It also shares vital contextual data with integrated technology partner solutions. The identification, containment, and remediation of threats are all accelerated through the integration, consolidation, and automation that Cisco ISE provides.  This session provides an overview of: Guest and Posture Flow Troubleshooting We’re expecting a basic knowledge being the initial configuration for ISE redirect flows for Guest and Posture.

Dynamic Multipoint VPN (DMVPN) is a Cisco IOS/IOS-XE Software solution for building scalable IPsec Virtual Private Networks (VPNs). Cisco DMVPN uses a centralized architecture to provide easier implementation and management for deployments that require granular access controls for diverse user communities, including mobile workers, telecommuters, and extranet users. Cisco DMVPN allows branch locations to communicate directly with each other over the public or private WAN or Internet but doesn't require a permanent VPN connection between sites. It enables zero-touch deployment of IPsec VPNs and improves network performance by reducing latency and jitter, while optimizing head office bandwidth utilization.  This session will provide some insight into the base components involved in DMVPN and the different phases of deployment (hub-spoke model v. dynamic full mesh). It will focus on the layered troubleshooting approach required when working on DMVPN-related network issues and how it can be used to troubleshoot commonly seen problems in the field.

Safeguarding your network assets and data from today’s threats isn’t easy. You need detailed visibility into all your network layers and resources. With the Cisco Firepower solutions, that’s what you get. This visibility provides the contextual awareness you need to properly evaluate the users, hosts, and applications running in your network, detect multi-vendor threats, and mount an automated defense response.  Plus, the Firepower solution not only protects your network against known and unknown threats before at attack - but does so during and after an attack as well. In independent tests at NSS Labs, among the world’s leading information security research and advisory companies, the Firepower solution was rated 99.4 percent effective in stopping threats and a perfect 100 percent effective in not allowing evasion techniques to succeed. This session will provide an opportunity to learn and ask questions about overview of Firepower solution, use-case scenarios and insights on basic troubleshooting and best practices recommended by engineering.

Welcome to this Cisco Support Community Ask the Expert conversation. This is an opportunity to learn and any ask questions about how to secure your network using tools such as ZBFW, Snort IPS, CWS, FirePower & TrustSec and how to deploy and manage security policies using Cisco Prime and FireSight

Ask questions from Tuesday March 22 to Friday April 1st, 2016


The branch network is key to service delivery and success of many enterprises. After all, most staff don’t work (or shop!) at the data center—they are out in the branches. With the recent massive breaches on the news, security is top of mind concern for many enterprise customers, especially those looking to offload Internet access from their branches directly.
Threat landscape has evolved and attackers have become sophisticated at taking advantage of gaps in security to hide and conceal malicious activity. Traditionally, branch users Internet access was provided through Data Center where sophisticated security tools and policies were in place to protect the users. With the direct Internet breakout, the branch network must provide a good experience with robust security to any user as a part of any new initiative.
This session provides an overview of threat landscape, risks and integrated security tools and techniques available on ISR branch routers to prevent/protect/mitigate these threats.

Webcast: Threat Defense for a Secure Enterprise Branch
(Live Webcast Tuesday March 22, 2016 at 10 am Pacific/ 1 pm Eastern)

The branch network is key to service delivery and success of many enterprises. After all, most staff don’t work (or shop!) at the data center—they are out in the branches. With the recent massive breaches on the news, security is top of mind concern for many enterprise customers, especially those looking to offload Internet access from their branches directly.
Threat landscape has evolved and attackers have become sophisticated at taking advantage of gaps in security to hide and conceal malicious activity. Traditionally, branch users Internet access was provided through Data Center where sophisticated security tools and policies were in place to protect the users. With the direct Internet breakout, the branch network must provide a good experience with robust security to any user as a part of any new initiative.
This session provides an overview of threat landscape, risks and integrated security tools and techniques available on ISR branch routers to prevent/protect/mitigate these threats.
