We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
To add workers and even collectors is pretty easy.The seamless integration with FortiGate is the solution's most valuable aspect.Both the collecting logs and duo correlation are valuable features for us.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.

It's fully scalable. There is no limit. Of course, the license limits per day the number of terabytes. In my opinion, it's very flexible.The most valuable feature is the ability to write rules and triggers for network communication, and then being able to investigate based on that.The most valuable features are its ingestion of logs and raising of alerts based on those logs.Their technical support responds quickly and are knowledgable.The most valuable feature is the correlation. It can report in real-time and monitor the management.It gives the ability to investigate into network traffic in the Net and the organization what we couldn't do before.

Cons
The dashboard needs to improve.When compared with some competitors, in terms of performance, the CPU and RAM requirements and the capability of coordination with development all need some improvement.The support of the product changed recently, and I don't think it's for the better. They should work to improve the support they offer to clients.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.vvvThe 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.

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 implementation needs assistance.We have encountered issues with unresolved crashes.

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.

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

FortiSIEM (formerly AccelOps 4) provides an actionable security intelligence platform to monitor security, performance and compliance through a single pane of glass.

Companies around the world use FortiSIEM for the following use cases:

  • Threat management and intelligence that provide situational awareness and anomaly detection
  • Alleviating compliance mandate concerns for PCI, HIPAA and SOX
  • Managing “alert overload”
  • Handling the “too many tools” reporting issue
  • Addressing the MSPs/MSSPs pain of meeting service level agreements

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.
