Your ISE Journey for Secure Wired Access

Set up secure wired access to create authentication, access control, and user policy enforcement for more secure network connectivity and resources. Requires an ISE Base licence.

The resources on this page will assist you in setting up secure wired access. Use the content groupings below to begin your setup. Your journey doesn’t end with the Use phase. Stay tuned for additional resources to help you engage, adopt and optimise.



You have probably already set up your Smart Licensing account and planned for ISE setup – but if not, start here.
