Fortinet FortiAnalyzer Room for Improvement

Network Security Engineer at Frampol
I would like to be able to do more customization. For example, I would like to be able to develop my own set of reports that I can upload to the analyzer, and then it can report in a fashionable way as to what I really expect, rather than the ones that are preconfigured. Then we can play around with them in terms of where you can position your top bandwidth users, and such. The reports are good, but they are over-summarized. View full review »

Reporting wasn't very good in the previous version, but I believe it has greatly improved. The newer version has more features and the quality of reporting is better too. I would also like to see an improvement in the rebooting. View full review »

They can include integration with devices, such as firewalls, endpoints, from other vendors. They can include graphic monitoring of everything in the network, not just Fortinet products. It would also be good to include customizable reports and customizable views of the reports. View full review »

Every time there is a firmware upgrade the interface changes, and you'll have to maneuver that interface to see how to use it. When somebody is new to the system they find it difficult to perform certain operations, like backups, and to see where the reports are. A more user-friendly interface would be an improvement. I would like to see support for analyzing the wireless site, without going through the controller. For example, I would like to see a report on the full data including the APs that were up or down, and whether something has been upgraded. View full review »

There aren't any features missing. It's very complete. Their in-house technical support is extremely slow to respond. We have our own in-house team to manage issues so clients don't have to wait over two weeks for a response to issues. The solution has some limitations. We use MNC, and it has a US patent. Here we can do this thing but we maybe can't do that thing. They provide some documents to customers, but the customers want remote support to take on and/or finish the work. That's why I have the deployment team in place. It's a team within our team. View full review »

With FortiAnalyzer, most of the time, although the interface is simplified, when you are new to it you have issues of navigating through it. And when it comes to pushing logs to a SIEM, most of the time we have some issues when it comes to filtering. Also, reports need to be simplified because its reporting currently includes more detailed and technical things. If we could get a simplified or executive summary, that would be good.

I'm looking for something more efficient to analyze different foreign things. That's why FortiSIEM could compete with FortiAnalyzer. View full review »
Assistant Manager - Cloud Planning and Development at a comms service provider with 1,001-5,000 employees
The solution doesn't have online analysis. We can't analyze certain parts of the logs. For example, we can't analyze current logs. It would be helpful if we could use the system we use to monitor everything to also check the live traffic or live logs. The solution lacks business intelligence features. It's much too basic.

Fortinet FortiAnalyzer is not in the cloud environment like some of the other products. There could be a possibility of extending its functionality to the cloud environment. If possible, they could have a deal with or integrate with other firewall manufacturers, like Palo Alto and Cisco, and mix the information. It is a difficult functionality. I don't know if any product in the market provides such functionality. View full review »

One of the main disadvantages is not having a direct link to the security policy when you see something in the log. You should be able to right-click and go directly to the security policy. When you compare with Checkpoint, they are very good with reporting and logging, and when you right-click on the log you can go to the policy and edit it. In the next release, I would like to have a feature added where you can right-click and it takes you directly to the policy to edit it. View full review »

Information Security Specialist at Ministry of Heritage and Culture
The solution is quite expensive. 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. View full review »

I would like to see an improvement in the technical support. Stronger authentication will also be a plus. In the next version, I would like to have authentication for 40 tokens. View full review »
