What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the differentiator, which has a combination of not only the SOC which covers the security operations aspect, but it also includes NOC capabilities. FortiSIEM uses PAM (Performance, Availability, and Monitoring) from an NOC perspective. So not only do you natively look at security data as most SIEM solutions, but you're also looking at the performance and the… more»

What needs improvement?

When they started out after acquiring AccelOps, the user interface wasn't that great. But from version 5.0 they have obviously radically changed the interface, aligning it to the rest of the Forti products from a user experience point of view. This means that there is constant improvement on the interface side of the solution. The other thing that I've noticed is when searching for very old… more»

What other advice do I have?

We use an on-premises deployment model from our perspective and a hybrid model from a customer/user perspective. I will recommend this solution to others out there looking for a SIEM solution. I've already done a few events we were talk about FortiSIEM and its advantages. I do, however, think the main dashboard where you create and design your graphs could do with some improvement improved. On a… more»

What is most valuable?

The comprehensive view of the dashboard and the attribute base interface and the flexibility of implementation methods.

How has it helped my organization?

FortiSIEM gives us a lot of valuable events and details by using a unified event-based framework to analyze all data including logs, performance monitoring data and provides a broad range of metrics.

What needs improvement?

The Fortinet Fabric should be more easy more friendly to use. They use a different parsing log format. for example Symantec ATP is not supported by FortiSIEM. Our reseller provided us FortiSIEM as a service. They should also provide us with… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

They have a poor correlation. They didn't use any new concepts like Fortinet. They just display the logs as it is with no attribute base.

What other advice do I have?

The interface is easy to use but initial setup is not . The connector in the core has FortiSIEM support from the vendor. FortiSIEM supports a lot of vendors. It is a good product for us. I rank it as eight on a scale from one to ten… more»

What is most valuable?

AccelOps can handle a lot of data and it's just so important to true monitoring. That is the strong point of AccelOps. The second one is detecting. I can create a lot of rules to detect anything I like, and this is another strong point. It's also the only SIEM platform on the market that has health… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The platform is nice. It is not easy to implement, but once you do so, there is a lot of value from the platform.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used a solution previously. I switched because I needed evolving technology. I needed to evolve to smart features. The most important criteria when selecting a vendor is price. After that it's detection.

What other advice do I have?

I advise that you should plan your financial resources and plan the platform. Also, be sure to test the performance ability, as well as scalability.

How has it helped my organization?

This solution allows us to ingest syslogs from Fortinet firewalls and other products into what we call FortiSIEM. This is a processor that correlates it with the event types and incidents. It gives us the opportunity to generate… more»

What needs improvement?

The backup and recovery process for this solution needs improvement. I would like to see a database with more structure in terms of maintenance and ease of use. The process of creating is much simpler than that of duplication. The… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We bought the perpetual license, so we own the product, but there is a three-year support renewal fee for that.

What other advice do I have?

We are very impressed with this product. However, they have to fix their backup and recovery procedure and provide a good DR service without charging for a secondary license. I would rate this solution a seven and a half out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate Splunk before choosing this solution, but it was too much on the high end for our business model.

What is most valuable?

Analytics is the most valuable feature. The business service summaries in the dashboards and the correlations for the SIEM are also valuable features.

What needs improvement?

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. It should also have better integration.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Licensing is a one time cost. If you want to enable different modules then there will be additional costs.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously use another SIEM solution.

What other advice do I have?

Properly review this solution and your requirements. See how it will scale up to cloud requirements. Cloud technologies are becoming more prominent and you should see how you will be able to manage it with this tool. It's a good product but… more»

What is most valuable?

Both the collecting logs and duo correlation are valuable features for us. Fortinet also offers very good pricing. Their pricing is incredible.

What needs improvement?

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. They also have to improve their import perfection solution.

What other advice do I have?

We use the public cloud deployment model. I like the product, and I would recommend it, but I much prefer Splunk. The beautiful thing about Fortinet is that they have integrated many, many solutions. Their platform is very powerful. In the case of the customer, if he decides to choose Fortinet… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I did not evaluate other options; this solution was the decision of the customer. However, in the past, I have evaluated and worked with Splunk and IBM.

What is most valuable?

The solution has an all-in-one approach. We buy one product and everything our customer needs is included. He doesn't have to pay any additional licenses to get more functionality, so everything is there and if we have to do any adjustments, it's also done very quickly and easily.

What needs improvement?

The solution can't be improved, but it can be managed more clearly. The solution just needs minor improvements. I'm quite sure Fortinet is already working on this. They could work on their documentation. If there's anything about the solution that needs improvement, it's that. For example… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

If we do an overall comparison with other products and also count additional licenses, which are necessary for other products, then the prices are comparative. If we just leave it at base prices, for example, Splunk: Splunk is cheaper, but if you also count the price for licenses, reports, and other… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate the solution nine out of ten. Our clients have been very happy with the solution.

What is most valuable?

The seamless integration with FortiGate is the solution's most valuable aspect.

What needs improvement?

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. The solution should offer user behavior analytics in a future release.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used an open-source solution called Elastic.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd recommend this solution to companies that have a FortiGate firewall and are on a limited budget. I'd rate the solution six out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated AlienVault and SolarWinds. These were both within our limited budget, but we chose FortiSIEM because it integrated seamlessly with FortiGate firewall.
