Network Access for Guests
With the increased use of and dependency on mobile devices, such as laptops, tablets, and mobile phones, people have become accustomed to being able to access the Internet from anywhere. However, access to corporate networks requires more security than free Wi-Fi at a local coffee shop. Network security is critical to maintaining your company’s confidentiality and data integrity. Network security prevents unauthorized users from hacking your company’s network.
To protect your company’s network and to ensure that only authorized guests can access it, your company uses Cisco Identity Service Engine (ISE) guest services. Cisco ISE ensures that only authorized guests, such as visitors, contractors, consultants, and customers can access your network.
Your Role as a Sponsor
As a sponsor, you are responsible for using the Sponsor portal to create and manage guest accounts for authorized visitors to your organization. These accounts enable visitors to access your company’s network or provide access to the Internet. When creating these accounts, follow your company guidelines for providing network access to visitors. Cisco ISE saves the entire guest process for auditing and reporting purposes, which your company can use to verify that only authorized visitors have been granted network access.
