Quotes From Members Comparing CA Spectrum vs Fortinet FortiSIEM (AccelOps)

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
It helps our NetOps group actually handle alarms in a way that lets them see the bigger picture of those alarms, and how they might affect our services. It helps us communicate information about the network state better to services that might be impacted by a specific network condition.As the kind of enterprise that straddles the line between telco size and enterprise size, it scales for us, because we're not all the way at telco yet.​It covers a lot of different types of hardware. It can do a lot and saves us time.​It is very stable. We have not had any major issues in over 10 years.​The stability of the product is key. It never breaks, really. The stability and reliability of the Spectrum product have been top-notch.​I can use it to detect whenever things go wrong on my network.We can plan changes and replacement of end-of-life products in our environment very well because it's very accurate.Spectrum does such a great job of discovering our network that we have a high confidence in what our inventory is.

Analytics. It can provide log information from the device. With log information, I can see if there is a threatThe ability to write my own parsers for the devices that are not supported by Fortinet is the most valuable feature.There are things like dashboards and reports (pre-configured and custom) that let me know that things are operating the way they should be, and when they are not.We're able to get real-timec as well as our customer networks that we're monitoring at all times.The primary valuable feature is that it has replaced a whole lot of other products with one platform.

Cons
The Spectrum OneClick is a Java-based client, and that's aging. Really, before any new feature integration, I'd love to see a comprehensive rebuild of the UI.The upgrade process could be smoother. More of the steps around upgrading could be automated.A better integration with the UIM, as far as being able to do root cause analysis and that type of analytics.Needs better integration with all the other products in the Agile suite of tools; anything they could do to make that less complex, would be great.If nobody else has said the documentation needs improvement, let's go there. I understand, you can either write about it or you can do it. And most of us would rather they do it, but now that they've done it, those of us that didn't do it, we need to go and find: "Where did they write about this to tell us how to do it?" That's always lacking.We have had one support issue that's been open for a couple of months, and it is currently open.​I would like to see them eliminate the Java console. The user interface for this is a Java applet that runs on your desktop, and it is very problematic for us.We have had some issues with the spec server and the high availability replication of data. It fails over well, but it does not come back very well. We get duplicated events.

If there is a configuration on the wrong side of the network or there are changes that result in harm to our IT infrastructure, the solution should immediately fix it.The reporting feature is not very attractive for the upper management and I am not able to perform complex/nested queries.The biggest thing that could be better is a quicker response to support cases.The dashboards need to be improved. It gives you so much detail, but sometimes too much detail, especially to an executive, it's too much.It lacks a "wizard" that shows a particular user's activity or particular circumstance. I think the interface is intimidating because there's so much information there.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost of some of these products are a little cost prohibitive, which is unfortunate. We have to find lower cost solutions for some of the things that we have to pull in. For the most part, CA has capabilities in pretty much everything that you would need. You just have to figure out where are you going to spend the most money for what you have to actually get done. You can do all these things but, which ones do you have to do? And that's hard to choose sometimes because you want to do them all.

Please be cheaper and more simplified.
