LOS ANGLES, CA, March 06, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- To support the expanding role of access control solutions that leverage the intelligence of the network, En Pointe Technologies, a Gold certified Cisco partner, and one of the largest Microsoft licensing and systems integrators, announced today that it has achieved Identity Services Engine (ISE) Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status from Cisco. This designation recognizes En Pointe as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco ISE products and solutions.
The Cisco ISE platform is a comprehensive, next-generation, contextually-based access control solution that offers exceptional visibility and control to ensure a highly secure enterprise and efficiently enforce security policy across an entire distributed network. The Cisco ISE offers authenticated network access, profiling, posture, and guest management along with monitoring, reporting and troubleshooting capabilities on a single physical or virtual appliance. The Cisco ISE enables scalable and flexible enforcement mechanisms leveraging existing identity-aware network infrastructure, and ships on a wide range of physical appliances with different performance settings to address multiple deployment requirements.
"The networking landscape continues to become more complex due to an increase in mobile users requiring access to data and applications from virtually anywhere, from any device. Companies are looking for immediate ways to maintain stringent compliance with BYOD and unified access control demands," said Herb Hogue, SVP of professional services and engineering, En Pointe Technologies. "As a Cisco Gold and ISE Certified Partner, En Pointe is uniquely qualified to design security solutions, leveraging Cisco's ISE, to help manage multiple access scenarios and support a company's BYOD initiatives."
The Cisco ATP program is part of the go-to-market strategy for Cisco ISE solutions. The program helps define the knowledge, skills and services that channel partners need to successfully sell, deploy and support ISE solutions.
With En Pointe, companies not only get Cisco expertise, but expertise in hardware, software, and comprehensive IT services that integrate with Cisco solutions. Additionally, En Pointe can help customers integrate Citrix XenMobile MDM, Symantec endpoint protection, and NetApp storage with Cisco, along with deploying Microsoft software (Microsoft Active Directory, Microsoft Windows Server, and other Microsoft components) within the data center.
