DORAL, FL--(Marketwire - Jul 18, 2012) - To support the expanding role of access control solutions that leverage the intelligence of the network, United Data Technologies (UDT) announced today that it has achieved Identity Services Engine (ISE) Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status from Cisco. This designation recognizes United Data Technologies (UDT) 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.
"Achieving the Identity Services Engine ATP further enhances our Cisco security offering. We continue to round out our security practice with talented architects and engineers as well as multiple specializations," said Scott Byers, VP of Commercial Sales - Midsouth. "BYOD is a hot topic within our customer base and evidently Cisco ISE can enforce compliance, enhance security, and increase productivity for them."
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.
