Pros
We haven't had any crashes or bugs. It is stable.The ability to customize the solution in great detail is its most valuable features. We can customize the use cases and also have the ability to do scripting. We can personalize our dashboard as well. The scalability the solution offers is quite impressive.The most valuable feature is the level of detail that you can see about certain events, even when they do not come up in the console.In our country we are a little bit private in terms of solutions, so we are just starting to use the basic data capture. Now some users can start to use additional features that come with Micro Focus ArcSight like user behavior analytics for investigating.The ESM use cases are the most valuable. It enables us to use the big data collection inside our company. We are able to create use cases for whatever it suits and I find that the most interesting part of any SIEM solution.

Cons
In the next release, I want to see more intelligence.The solution should make it possible to integrate network analysis features.I would like to see better scheduling in the next release of this solution.I think the ArcSight team should try to simplify legacy products for the customers, because that product is not easy to use or to work with. It needs more more competency or appeal to use. We hope Micro Focus is trying to resolve this.The speed of Logger indexing and searching for certain bugs for some queries that we provide could be improved. It can handle a huge number of logs but it can be improved.

The reports are good, but they are over-summarized.The technical support is not very good.When it comes to pushing logs to a SIEM, most of the time we have some issues when it comes to filtering.I'm looking for something more efficient to analyze different foreign things. That's why FortiSIEM could compete with FortiAnalyzer.The solution could use more graphics and be more specific in the dashboard. This way, I'm able to understand everything and effectively understand what's going on, including what's incoming and outgoing. Right now, I have to look up everything. I need a dashboard so that I can see specific items right there in one place.I would like to see an improvement in the technical support. Stronger authentication will also be a plus.When somebody is new to the system they find it difficult to perform certain operations, like backups, and to see where the reports are.It is very important that FAZ can support FortiController as the architecture designed for the network. FortiController should be registered in FAZ at least for event logs.

The pricing of this solution is fair, and it is based on what you can manage.The program is expensive.The price is quite expensive. Fortinet products are very expensive. That is something which they should also look at, because if you compare Fortinet product to, say, Sophos for example, Fortinet is really high and that's the only thing which is a drawback for most users.We have around 12 devices and yearly we spend approximately $14,000.All Fortinet programs come at a good price.We have several products including Fortinet Wireless, FortiGate Firewalls, and FortiAnalyzer, which are bundled together and cost approximately $50,000 USD annually.The cost and pricing should be in accordance with the calculation of log storage capacity for a time period required for historical analysis.​It depends upon the company.​
