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

Pros
"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.""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.""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.""The ability to have high performance, high-speed search capability is incredibly important for us. When it comes to doing security analysis, you don't want to be doing is sitting around waiting to get data back while an attacker is sitting on a network, actively attacking it. You need to be able to answer questions quickly. If I see an indicator of attack, I need to be able to rapidly pivot and find data, then analyze it and find more data to answer more questions. You need to be able to do that quickly. If I'm sitting around just waiting to get my first response, then it ends up moving too slow to keep up with the attacker. Devo's speed and performance allows us to query in real-time and keep up with what is actually happening on the network, then respond effectively to events."

"Some of our customers who use this solution have seen improvement in their connection with load balancing on both connections.""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.""The interface is very easy to use. The connector in the core has FortiSIEM support from the vendor.""The most valuable feature is the dashboard. CMDB database collects data from a lot of pre-configured devices.""Analytics is the most valuable feature. The business service summaries in the dashboards and the correlations for the SIEM are also valuable features.""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.""Both the collecting logs and duo correlation are valuable features for us.""The seamless integration with FortiGate is the solution's most valuable aspect."

"It gives the ability to investigate into network traffic in the Net and the organization what we couldn't do before.""The most valuable feature is the correlation. It can report in real-time and monitor the management.""Their technical support responds quickly and are knowledgable.""The most valuable features are its ingestion of logs and raising of alerts based on those logs.""The most valuable feature is the ability to write rules and triggers for network communication, and then being able to investigate based on that.""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 features are the packet decoder, log decoder, and concentrator.""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."

Cons
"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.""There's always room to reduce the learning curve over how to deal with events and machine data. They could make the machine data simpler.""There is room for improvement in the ability to parse different log types. The breadth of overall log parsers that exists right now is an area that they could improve. Natively, there's more that could be done by Devo then what it can and can't understand from a parsing perspective."

More Devo Cons »

"Our customers are noticing configuration available in the GUI interface and I think that they should be equal.""The backup and recovery process for this solution needs improvement.""The nodes on our network did not comply with the SIEM solution. They use a different format parking log.""The performance can be improved. Sometimes it takes a long time to fetch data.""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""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.""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.""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."

"We have encountered issues with unresolved crashes.""The implementation needs assistance.""The initial setup was complex because it takes a lot of time to complete the implementation.""I'd like to see improvement in its ease of use. It's basically unusable. It's overly complex.""The system looks like it is a mix of a bunch of different systems, and nothing looked like it was quite together.""They should implement algorithms to digest that data and produce additional, more advanced reporting, alerting and support of internal security teams.""Log aggregation is an issue with this solution because there are a huge number of alerts in a single instance.""The initial setup is very complex and should be simplified."

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.""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.""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.""We have seen ROI. We have seen cost savings in maintenance, upkeep, and support."

"We bought the perpetual license, so we own the product, but there is a three-year support renewal fee for that.""Pricing is acceptable for more than 90% of our customers, as they normally get discounts."

More Fortinet FortiSIEM Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It is cheap.""The licenses are good but the cost is very expensive.""This is a pricey solution; it's not cheap.""We have a perpetual license, so the total cost of ownership is not very expensive. It's a good investment.""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.""Our license is for one year."

Overview

Devo unlocks the full value of machine data for the world’s most instrumented enterprises by putting more data to work now. With Devo, IT executives finally realize the transformational promise of machine data to drive breakthrough projects that move the entire business forward.

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.
