Networking For Future, Inc. (NFF), the only locally owned and headquartered IT Technology Solutions provider and Cisco Gold Partner in Washington DC, received the Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) certification for Cisco’s Identity Services Engine (ISE) solution. ATPs are only granted from Cisco on a by-invitation-only basis and serve as an endorsement of the company’s investment in training, demo capabilities, and additional personnel certification prerequisites, which must be met.
Organizations feel the need to support employee “bring-your-own-device” (BYOD) to work policies and desire more secure access for their data center and virtualized resources. Cisco’s Identity Services Engine (ISE) is the solution of choice to support this. With a context-aware and identity-based platform, organizations can reliably enforce compliance, enhance infrastructure security, and streamline service operations.
The Authorized Technology Provider for ISE designation validates NFF’s ability to help organizations deploy ISE across an enterprise infrastructure. As of this time, there are only very few Cisco partners (about 85 of almost 1000 Cisco partners in the U.S.) with the ISE ATP designation. “We are very proud to be part of this elite group of Cisco partners and NFF is ready to assist our customers with ISE services and implementation,” said Glen Carter, NFF’s Director of Technology Services.
"Security is the primary consideration to properly supporting any customer's initiative around BYOD. Technology solutions such as ISE provide the control mechanisms necessary to maintain the insight and threat mitigation needed to enable any open endpoint policy,” said Glen Carter, Director of Technology Services. "NFF's engineering capabilities and expertise in identity solutions backed by Cisco's Advanced Technology Partner (ATP) accreditation enables our customers to proceed with confidence on BYOD initiatives."
A long-established partner with Cisco, in addition to the ISE, NFF holds two additional ATP designations in Data Center Unified Computing and TelePresence Video Express. Earlier in 2012, the technology integrator NFF received the Cisco Customer Satisfaction Award for the 16th time consecutively.
