Implementing Cisco Secure Access Solutions (300-208)


The 300-208 Implementing Cisco Secure Access Solutions (SISAS) exam tests whether a network security engineer knows the components and architecture of secure access by utilizing 802.1X and Cisco TrustSec. This 90-minute exam consists of 55 – 65 questions. It tests on Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) architecture, solution, and components as an overall network threat mitigation and endpoint control solutions. It also includes the fundamental concepts of BYOD using posture and profiling services of ISE. Candidates can prepare for this exam by taking the Implementing Cisco Secure Access Solutions (SISAS) course. The following topics are general guidelines for the content likely to be included on the exam. However, other related topics may also appear on any specific delivery of the exam. In order to better reflect the contents of the exam and for clarity purposes, the guidelines below may change at any time without notice.
