Hybrid Fortinet Fabric Solutions with a comprehensive view for all Fortinet products and a little support for other...
Find out what your peers are saying about Fortinet FortiSIEM (AccelOps) vs. LogRhythm NextGen SIEM and other solutions. Updated: September 2019.
365,423 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The solution is very stable. It's run for years without the need to do anything except, add new patches when they are available, which are always a good idea to install.
Analytics is the most valuable feature. The business service summaries in the dashboards and the correlations for the SIEM are also valuable features.
The most valuable feature is the dashboard. CMDB database collects data from a lot of pre-configured devices.
The interface is very easy to use. The connector in the core has FortiSIEM support from the vendor.
It gives us the opportunity to generate notifications based upon rules that get triggered, and the rules could be specific to PCI, HIPAA, GIBA, NIST, and so forth.
Some of our customers who use this solution have seen improvement in their connection with load balancing on both connections.
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.
We use this solution to examine disparate log sources and provide a cohesive method to search for anomalous behavior.
The feature that makes it usable is the web interface.
The ability to investigate a particular period of time where you can analyze logs is its most valuable feature.
It has centralized monitoring for our security operations. Therefore, it improves our analysts' work.
The most valuable features would be the automation, reporting, and the support.
The Web Console is my favorite. It enables me, at a glance, to see the health of the environments.
Even other products we have that feed into it, instead of having to watch all of them we only have to watch one. For example, we have CrowdStrike, so instead of having to pay attention that solution - because their dashboard doesn't really pop when an alarm comes up - we can see issues with the red on the LogRhythm alarm. That is very nice.
We take in around 750 million logs a day. We have a lot of products and that would be a lot of different panes of glass that we would have to look through otherwise. By centralizing, we can triage and take steps much more quickly than if we tried to man that many interfaces that come with the products.
They could work on their documentation. If there's anything about the solution that needs improvement, it's that. For example, documentation already is on a very high level but specifically on the CLI there are tons of features which can be fine-tuned and thousands of commands are very difficult to document. If they could make this easier, it would improve the overall solution.
Their product support, in general, is not that great. The product support is in the same ecosystem. Their support is improving but it's not that great.vvv
The performance can be improved. Sometimes it takes a long time to fetch data.
The nodes on our network did not comply with the SIEM solution. They use a different format parking log.
The backup and recovery process for this solution needs improvement.
Our customers are noticing configuration available in the GUI interface and I think that they should be equal.
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.
I would like to see support added for Exchange 2016, and CheckPoint OPSec Lea.
It is a product that is very hard to use.
I would like to see more integration with more products that are out there within the same security field.
Stability has probably been one area where Health Checks have not been great with the product. We have been told that they are going to improve Health Checks on product, though we do struggle with them on a daily basis.
Scalability misses the mark sometimes, especially when you have an integrated disaster recovery built into the solution.
My biggest issue - I know that they say they're doing it - is that the API-building is extremely important. They keep saying it's coming, it's coming. It's not coming fast enough. I don't care if they need to double their team size to get it out there quicker, the world is already in the cloud and we can't monitor it. That's a big problem for us. My boss keeps coming to me about it. That's an issue.
My biggest complaint is documentation. Everyone tells me, "We have documentation on the Community site." I have searched for different types of documentation on numerous occasions, and it might be there, but it's not easily findable.
My big thing is the easability. I don't like to go to two different systems. The fat client that you have to install to configure it, then the web console which is just for reporting and analysis. These features need to collapse, and it needs to be in a single solution. Going through the web solution in the future is the way to do it, because right now, it is a bit cumbersome.
Pricing and Cost Advice
We bought the perpetual license, so we own the product, but there is a three-year support renewal fee for that.
Everything is expensive with LogRhythm, and you don't get anything for free.
When it comes time to renew, they say, "This is what you are using. This is what we can do for you." So, they work with you on pricing.
We have seen a measurable decrease in the mean time to detect and respond to threats. As it comes out new features and new releases, the window is becoming a lot narrower because you can pivot a lot more with the data. Therefore, the new features and enhancements are reducing that.
The nice thing about LogRhythm is you can either use the agents, getting a certain number of agents with your license depending on how you want to go, and those agents do a lot of cool things, or you can use CIS Log host, then you have like an unlimited number of them.
The solution has provided us with consistency and increased staff productivity through orchestrated automated work flows by at least 20 percent.
I have seen a measurable decrease in the mean time to detect and respond to threats. We went from not detecting them to detecting them. We can actually pick up what is anomalous in our network now.
In comparison to the competition, they are more affordable. This allows us to do more with less.
I would recommend talking to the rep. That's the biggest thing because they will know what questions to ask.
