Add Cisco ISE as a source for mapping usernames and IP addresses
In instances where BYOD is allowed on corporate networks, the devices authenticate on a Cisco ISE. This provides a username and IP mapping that customer is interested in using within the Exinda. Cisco ISE supports pxGrid, that is a tool to share the identity information.
Customer would like to be able to get the users from this device so they can be used in policies within the Exinda like the current Active Directory.

Maybe it would be better to integrate all unrelated network appliances into a common LDAP / Active Directory solution to correlate specific users/groups across the network.
I am not against any particular vendor solution, however, there are many autonomous systems which would need to work with Exinda and I would rather see Exinda focus more on the aspect of traffic shaping. Therefore, keep specific branding away from such appliances and use open standards to accomplish such tasks.
Cisco ISE does work with Active Directory as does Exinda.
Just a thought.
