What do you think of Fortinet FortiSIEM (AccelOps)?

Introduction:  How many of you remember Cisco MARS? Well, if you don’t, let me remind you that they were one of the earliest SIEM products around that stemmed from the infrastructure monitoring space. MARS was geared more towards monitoring and reviewing network infrastructure including their utilization, performance availability and logs. After a brief run in enterprises that were Cisco heavy, the product died a natural death. People who were involved in the product left Cisco and started AccelOps (Accelerate Operations). As a product, they took the fundamentals of data collection and integrated infrastructure log, event monitoring to the data analytics platform. The result is a promising product called AccelOps. They have since been acquired by Fortinet, marking their foray...

What is most valuable?

The primary valuable feature is that it has replaced a whole lot of other products with one platform. That's a huge win right there. It can take logs from all my devices agentlessly and correlate data. It already has a lot of the advanced... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Although we're still in training, we can expect to see and address issues in our network, such as configuration errors that caused latency between disc, storage and server that we weren't aware of before.

What needs improvement?

It lacks a "wizard" that shows a particular user's activity or particular circumstance. I think the interface is intimidating because there's so much information there. I'd like to see a better dashboard that pretty. I want to be able to see... more»

What is most valuable?

I’ve used Accelops in multiple different capacities and at several organizations. As far as my current role, I am an operations manager, and it gives me operational oversight. There are things like dashboards and reports (pre-configured and... more»

How has it helped my organization?

In large-sized medium-sized and a small-sized organizations, it improves the ability to quickly drill down into events that occur, perform analysis, and find root cause. The most value I’ve found in it, quicker time-to-resolution.

What needs improvement?

The biggest thing that could be better is a quicker response to support cases.

What is most valuable?

The ability to write my own parsers for the devices that are not supported by Fortinet is the most valuable feature. It’s impossible to find an application that supports every device/manufacturer that we have. Thus, being able to write my own... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It is provides extremely fast and flexible query of logs/events on the network. For example, it’s easy to write a quick query for all the “authentication” requests on the network, regardless of where they came from, i.e., during the past... more»

What needs improvement?

The reporting feature is not very attractive for the upper management and I am not able to perform complex/nested queries. However, it does function well for our day-to-day operations.

What do you think of Fortinet FortiSIEM (AccelOps)?

Improvements to My Organization We're able to get real-timec as well as our customer networks that we're monitoring at all times. • Valuable Features Visibility Flexibility • Room for Improvement The dashboards need to be improved. It gives you so much detail, but sometimes too much detail, especially to an executive, it's too much. I need to be able to understand what my situational awareness is by looking at a simple graph. I've already made a specific feature request to just make it look sexier because that's what customers like to see. • Stability Issues The stability has been very good. We've had no issues with instability. • Scalability Issues What we really like about it is the ability to scale without costing an arm and a leg for us. They're highly...
