Online PR News – 09-July-2012 – RICHMOND HILL, ON – FlexITy, an award-winning provider of Cloud Solutions, Data Centre Technologies, Managed Services, and Unified Communications and Collaboration Solutions through its FlexTEL subsidiary, announced today that they have expanded their partnership with Cisco Systems by successfully completing the rigorous certification to become an Identity Services Engine (ISE) Authorized Technology Provider (ATP).
“Today’s networks must accommodate an ever-growing array of consumer IT devices while providing user-centric policy and enabling global collaboration. To support the expanding role of access solutions that leverage the intelligence of the network, the Cisco TrustSec® architecture addresses this shift by using identity-based access policies to tell you who and what is connecting to your network, allowing IT to enable appropriate services without sacrificing control,” commented Peter Stavropoulos, president and CEO of FlexITy.
The Cisco ISE focuses on the pervasive service enablement of Cisco TrustSec for borderless networks. ISE delivers all necessary services required by enterprise networks – AAA, profiling, posture, and guest management – on a common platform. As a comprehensive and contextually-based access control solution, ISE offers exceptional visibility and control ensuring a highly secure enterprise and an efficiently enforced security policy across a distributed network.
“We are proud to add another Cisco ATP to our long list of credential, reflecting our success helping clients reliably enforce compliance, enhance infrastructure security, and streamline service operations,” said Stavropoulos. “Visibility and control of user access are critical components for a network to support BYOD (bring-your-own-device) while maintaining an appropriate level of security. When our engineers present anyplace workspace solutions to clients, network security is often the top concern. Having expertise in a technology like ISE allows us to directly address their concerns with a specific solution knowing we have the engineering talent to deliver.”
