Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is definitely the ability that Devo has to ingest data. From the previous SIEM that I came from and helped my company administer, it really was the type of system where data was parsed on ingest. This meant that if you didn't build the parser efficiently or correctly, sometimes that would bring the system to its knees. You'd have a backlog of processing the logs as it was ingesting them.""One of the biggest features of the UI is that you see the actual code of what you're doing in the graphical user interface, in a little window on the side. Whatever you're doing, you see the code, what's happening. And you can really quickly switch between using the GUI and using the code. That's really useful.""The real-time analytics of security-related data are super. There are a lot of data feeds going into it and it's very quick at pulling up and correlating the data and showing you what's going on in your infrastructure. It's fast. The way that their architecture and technology works, they've really focused on the speed of query results and making sure that we can do what we need to do quickly. Devo is pulling back information in a fast fashion, based on real-time events.""Devo provides a multi-tenant, cloud-native architecture. This is critical for managed service provider environments or multinational organizations who may have subsidiaries globally. It gives organizations a way to consolidate their data in a single accessible location, yet keep the data separate. This allows for global views and/or isolated views restricted by access controls by company or business unit.""The user experience [is] well thought out and the workflows are logical. The dashboards are intuitive and highly customizable.""Being able to build and modify dashboards on the fly with Activeboards streamlines my analyst time because my analysts aren't doing it across spreadsheets or five different tools to try to build a timeline out themselves. They can just ingest it all, build a timeline out across all the logging, and all the different information sources in one dashboard. So, it's a huge time saver. It also has the accuracy of being able to look at all those data sources in one view. The log analysis, which would take 40 hours, we can probably get through it in about five to eight hours using Devo.""The user interface is really modern. As an end-user, there are a lot of possibilities to tailor the platform to your needs, and that can be done without needing much support from Devo. It's really flexible and modular. The UI is very clean.""Even if it's a relatively technical tool or platform, it's very intuitive and graphical. It's very appealing in terms of the user interface. The UI has a graphically interface with the raw data in a table. The table can be as big as you want it, depending on your use case. You can easily get a report combining your data, along with calculations and graphical dashboards. You don't need a lot of training, because the UI is relatively very intuitive."

"It's a very nice solution to work with.""The product is quite well-organized. The GUI makes it easy to navigate.""One of the most valuable features is that we can combine SOC and NOC operations in the same tool. We can provide NOC and SOC services in the same tool for two separate teams. There are plenty of third-party solutions that integrate with FortiSIEM. All these solutions already have a ready integration, and we have the possibility to create a custom connector for these solutions. Its reports are also very good.""We find the solution to be stable.""The solution is easy to use and user-friendly.""Fortinet FortiSIEM is easy to use.""We have found the most important features in Fortinet FortiSIEM to be the correlation, file utility check, latest file, and hash changes. These features are important for us.""The CMDB and the device discovery features are most valuable."

"It's quite economical compared to other solutions in the market.""The most valuable features are the threat prediction and network forensics.""The solution is really scalable for the high-end power, enterprise customer.""The newer 11.5 version that my team is using has found it to have good mapping.""The most valuable features are the packet inspection and the automated incident response.""The most valuable features are the packet decoder, log decoder, and concentrator.""Performance and reporting are very good.""What we are mainly using are the RSA concentrator, RSA Decoder, Archiver, Broker, and Log Decoder."

Cons
"I would like to have the ability to create more complex dashboards.""Some basic reporting mechanisms have room for improvement. Customers can do analysis by building Activeboards, Devo’s name for interactive dashboards. This capability is quite nice, but it is not a reporting engine. Devo does provide mechanisms to allow third-party tools to query data via their API, which is great. However, a lot of folks like or want a reporting engine, per se, and Devo simply doesn't have that. This may or may not be by design.""From our experience, the Devo agent needs some work. They built it on top of OS Query's open-source framework. It seems like it wasn't tuned properly to handle a large volume of Windows event logs. In our experience, there would definitely be some room for improvement. A lot of SIEMs on the market have their own agent infrastructure. I think Devo's working towards that, but I think that it needs some improvement as far as keeping up with high-volume environments.""There's room for improvement within the GUI. There is also some room for improvement within the native parsers they support. But I can say that about pretty much any solution in this space.""Devo has a lot of cloud connectors, but they need to do a little bit of work there. They've got good integrations with the public cloud, but there are a lot of cloud SaaS systems that they still need to work with on integrations, such as Salesforce and other SaaS providers where we need to get access logs.""Technical support could be better.""Their documentation could be better. They are growing quickly and need to have someone focused on tech writing to ensure that all the different updates, how to use them, and all the new features and functionality are properly documented.""The Activeboards feature is not as mature regarding the look and feel. Its functionality is mature, but the look and feel is not there. For example, if you have some data sets and are trying to get some graphics, you cannot change anything. There's just one format for the graphics. You cannot change the size of the font, the font itself, etc."

More Devo Cons »

"The policy editing should be easier. Right now, it's too hard.""With FortiSIEM, the issue has to do with the ways we can generate a report. It's not as flexible compared to that with other SIEM tools, like Splunk.""Fortinet FortiSIEM could improve by having better integration and extensions. This would benefit by allowing us to give more rules.""I would like to see easier implementation in the future.""We expect the latest patch from Fortinet FortiSIEM to give the ability to work with signature files.""It would be good if the solution offered even more configuration options, especially in relation to the VPN so that it continues to be a very flexible option.""Its training can be improved. Its price also needs to be improved.""There is no proper guide for integration or configuration."

More Fortinet FortiSIEM Cons »

"Technical support could be improved.""Lots of competing products have vulnerability protection built into their products, and this solution would be improved by including that support.""The multi-tenant capabilities are lagging compared to IBM QRadar.""The solution should have more integration capabilities with different platforms.""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.""The user interface is a little bit difficult for new users and it needs to be improved.""There are instances where you try to run the reports and then it does not give you the desired outcome."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's a per gigabyte cost for ingestion of data. For every gigabyte that you ingest, it's whatever you negotiated your price for. Compared to other contracts that we've had for cloud providers, it's significantly less.""Our licensing fees are billed annually and per terabyte.""Devo was very cost-competitive... Devo did come with that 400 days of hot data, and that was not the case with other products.""Be cautious of metadata inclusion for log types in pricing, as there are some "gotchas" with that.""I'm not involved in the financial aspect, but I think the licensing costs are similar to other solutions. If all the solutions have a similar cost, Devo provides more for the money.""I like the pricing very much. They keep it simple. It is a single price based on data ingested, and they do it on an average. If you get a spike of data that flows in, they will not stick it to you or charge you for that. They are very fair about that.""Devo is definitely cheaper than Splunk. There's no doubt about that. The value from Devo is good. It's definitely more valuable to me than QRadar or LogRhythm or any of the old, traditional SIEMs.""We have an OEM agreement with Devo. It is very similar to the standard licensing agreement because we are charged in the same way as any other customer, e.g., we use the backroom."

More Devo Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Pricing is acceptable for more than 90% of our customers, as they normally get discounts.""The price of Fortinet FortiSIEM is a lot less when compared to other solutions.""Its price can be better. We are Fortinet partners, so we can get discounts, but its price can be an issue at the beginning for others. There is a licensing scheme for every case. There are three licensing schemes that we can choose from.""The solution is available for both, perpetual and subscription licenses.""They have a yearly subscription."

More Fortinet FortiSIEM Pricing and Cost Advice »

"We are on an annual license for the use of the solution.""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.""There is a licensing fee and the customer can choose whether he wishes this to be subscription-based or perpetual.""Our license is for one year."
