Quotes From Members Comparing Fortinet FortiSIEM (AccelOps) vs IBM QRadar

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
Log-monitoring and alerting enable us to know when things happen that we need to know about.The dashboards are very descriptive and contain just the right amount of information. The activity alarms and events contain a plethora of data that is very descriptive and useful.AlienVault provides a checklist answer when using SIEM.I can easily check (in one place) all the logs and data in relation to attacks. It also gives me an overview if a server is not configured properly.Its powerful correlation engine helps reduce time in manually correlating events.The main menu: You can see everything there, what is happening on the servers, and in the logs, you can view more details of each event.It has allowed us to see what is happening on our servers.The Event Correlation and vulnerability scans have been the most useful. As a 24/7 SOC, we use the incoming alarms to give an overview of suspicious traffic going through the network. It's easy to look at the correlated events and see the broad picture of traffic for that customer. Vulnerability scans are good for providing patch and remediation guidelines to keep customer systems secure.

AccelOps can handle a lot of data and it's just so important to true monitoring. Also, I can create a lot of rules to detect anything I like.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.

Senses, tracks, and links significant incidents and threats.The tool is already automated in many ways, but there are some additional functions which should be automated, like sending an email, mobile notification, and integration of XFS.On the back-end, Watson helps me figure out an exact problem, sometimes giving me the result.It saves a lot of time. We integrate the customer's firewall with all their networking devices.This console gives you the entire view, which makes life easier and allows you to take precautionary measures.Providing real-time visibility for threat detection and prioritization - QRadar SIEM provides contextual and actionable surveillance across the entire IT infrastructure.It is the core of our entire SOX.Due to the skills shortage, we are able to use it from the standpoint of bringing in a lower level employee or a person who may not have security knowledge.

Cons
they seem to have bugs from time to time that go unfixed for a while and that is frustrating. I'm not saying the product needs to be bug-free, but they need to be responsive to bugs.The only room for improvement I can mention is the initial installation procedures. I found that the online installation instructions for the product were missing important details, they lacked necessary steps.We develop additional rules and scripts to make it more usable.Plugins could be better utilized, as some of them do not recognize all logs.It was easy on PoC, but when we got to the product it was different story. We had to learn the product again and got feeling that the PoC was a different product.The only complex area of the setup was writing the custom scripts.It should be able to communicate with other security solutions to stop threats.As this software is in the cloud, you do not have control on updates and general changes which are happening.

Does not have load-sharing or high-availability, and these are important things to implement. I can do the same things in another way, but not naturally having these features makes it complicated.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 architecture could be improved. I got stuck for a long time trying to understand the architecture, as it is quite challenging.AI is superb but need improvements.The technical support is poor. Mostly because when I open a PMR for IBM, I am stuck with Level 1 staff. As an engineer, nothing that I am bringing them does not require Level 2 or Level 3 support.The user interface needs improvement.Do your research before implementing it, because it is tough to implement.For the common needs of clients to fulfill requirements, a real integration with Blueworks Live (BPA modeling tool also from IBM) and a more suitable BPM on cloud solution for midsize customers.Needs better visualization options beyond the time series charts and a few other options that they have.QRadar log integration of various applications can be a tough job at times. There may be occasions when you will not find any QRadar guide on adding logs of a particular application. Even if you come across one, adding a log process is not an easy one.

Pricing and Cost Advice
I don't think the product's pricing is a good value because they try to raise the price 50 percent every year... AlienVault needs to understand that not all customers are huge enterprises... Their sales team is way too aggressive. The price they advertise is not always the price you get.So far, I feel the product's pricing is a good value. The technology is decent. You get what you pay for. I think it's fair.​The vulnerability management solution is worse than buying a Nessus Professional license.​The ROI is quite good.Use an MSSP instead. It is much cheaper.We ran a few PoCs. The price and feature set were the best with AlienVault.Negotiate the best package for your environment.It has good pricing.

Please be cheaper and more simplified.

A good approach would be to begin with an On Cloud subscription, then later on do a more exact sizing.Pricing and licensing are competitive. Their new licensing options allow logs to bypass the correlation engine for a flat rate, which is also appealing for log data that is compliance-driven for a small amount of money.Pricing (based on EPS) will be more accurate.An X-Force feed is free with QRadar.It is expensive. It is not a product that I can provide for SMBs. It is a program that I can only provide for really large enterprises.The maintenance costs are high.Go through a vulnerability assessment review for price breaks. A virtualized solution will also cut down on cost.IBM's Qradar is not for small companie. Unfortunately, it would be 'overkill' to place it plainly. The pricing would be too much.
