Get the most out of your Cisco security solution

Your ISE Journey for Segmentation

Set up Cisco TrustSec software-defined segmentation to streamline security policy management across domains. You can segment devices without redesigning the network and easily manage access to enterprise resources. Requires ISE Base licence.

The resources on this page will assist you in setting up segmentation. Use the content groupings below to begin your setup, starting with onboard. 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. Then, use the "Planning for segmentation" resources to prepare for pre-installation requirements.


As you begin to scale and enhance your Segmentation, use these resources to troubleshoot and optimise.
