We use this functionality every day, and obtain reports on things like how many people are using the VPN, which websites are being accessed, and whether hackers are trying to penetrate into our network.

When it comes to pushing logs to a SIEM, most of the time we have some issues when it comes to filtering.

I'm looking for something more efficient to analyze different foreign things. That's why FortiSIEM could compete with FortiAnalyzer.

It is very important that FAZ can support FortiController as the architecture designed for the network. FortiController should be registered in FAZ at least for event logs.

The solution could use more graphics and be more specific in the dashboard. This way, I'm able to understand everything and effectively understand what's going on, including what's incoming and outgoing. Right now, I have to look up everything. I need a dashboard so that I can see specific items right there in one place.

It should have customized reports as well. While it currently has them, you need to write a script which is not straightforward.
The technical support takes at least two days to reply on any ticket post raised on their website.

I would like to see an improvement in the technical support. Stronger authentication will also be a plus.

I think some improvement is required in real-time log monitoring, as sometimes it gets stuck or displays results after a delay.
