Sharing the Context

Chapter Description

In this sample chapter from Integrated Security Technologies and Solutions - Volume II: Cisco Security Solutions for Network Access Control, Segmentation, Context Sharing, Secure Connectivity and Virtualization, you will learn about the many different ways of sharing context out of Cisco Identify Services Engine (ISE) to other security solutions, about Rapid Threat Containment, and about the Platform Exchange Grid (pxGrid). Because ISE is positioned to know exactly who and what is on the network at any given time, as well as assign different levels of access and context assignments with security group tags, it is the perfect security tool to be at the center of a security ecosystem.

Summary

In this chapter, you learned about the many different ways of sharing context out of ISE to other security solutions, about Rapid Threat Containment, and about the Platform Exchange Grid (pxGrid). In addition to sharing context from ISE to other systems, ISE is able to learn contextual data from those systems as well, creating a true symbiotic ecosystem.

You integrated Firepower with ISE and Active Directory for identity-based firewalling and Rapid Threat Containment using endpoint protection services (EPS). You integrated the Web Security Appliance and Stealthwatch for pxGrid integration with ISE to enhance their capabilities as well.
