What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the network-related reporting. This solution generates daily reports for network statistics, such as router uptime and events.

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.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you 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.
