Performance and reporting are very good.The most valuable features are the integration and ease of use.The most valuable feature is that we can create our own connectors for any application, and NetWitness provides the training and tools to do it.The most valuable features are the packet decoder, log decoder, and concentrator.It's fully scalable.

Cons
The integration is limited. The solution needs to offer better integration with multiple vendors.Product could include a user interface and be made simpler for customers to configure.Something that needs to improve, is the end-point protection.Most people are confused about how to use the right integration of the right Fortinet product.At least once a week we have a false alarm. This needs to be adjusted so that we get fewer of these occurrences.The response time from technical support should be improved.The licensing can be very confusing. It needs to be simplified.In the next release, I would like to see machine learning and anti-exploitation included.

The user interface is a little bit difficult for new users and it needs to be improved.The documentation is not as structured as I would like, personally, and I think that it can be improved and made much more user-friendly.The initial setup is very complex and should be simplified.Log aggregation is an issue with this solution because there are a huge number of alerts in a single instance.They should implement algorithms to digest that data and produce additional, more advanced reporting, alerting and support of internal security teams.The system looks like it is a mix of a bunch of different systems, and nothing looked like it was quite together.I'd like to see improvement in its ease of use. It's basically unusable. It's overly complex.The initial setup was complex because it takes a lot of time to complete the implementation.

The solution is not expensive at all.There are additional costs, which isn't included in the licensing fee.There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.

Many clients are not able to purchase the packet capability because there is a huge amount of data, and the cost depends on the number of EPS (Events per second), as well as the number of gigabytes of data per day.We have a perpetual license, so the total cost of ownership is not very expensive. It's a good investment.This is a pricey solution; it's not cheap.The licenses are good but the cost is very expensive.It is cheap.

Overview

Today’s threats are increasingly sophisticated and often bypass traditional malware security by masking their malicious activity. A sandbox augments your security architecture by validating threats in a separate, secure environment. FortiSandbox offers a powerful combination of advanced detection, automated mitigation, actionable insight, and flexible deployment to stop targeted attacks and subsequent data loss. It's also a key component of our Advanced Threat Protection solution.

If you’re relying on log data to detect and prevent cyber threats, you’re in trouble. Attackers increasingly evade detection of log-centric security and network monitoring tools. But logs combined with full packet, endpoint NetFlow data are proven to provide the essential details for early threat detection. Here’s a closer look at our solution.
