Most of our clients are banking and financial institutions, so their data doesn't go to the cloud as such. Their data is on-premises only. Some of our clients can go to the cloud to save the price and do management, administration, and so on, but then most of our clients, use on-premises FortiAnalyzer.

We primarily use the solution in order to analyze data. If you have two devices that need to communicate with each other, so you can see where any issue is as you can see every single communication. It shows the flux of communication.

We mostly use the FortiAnalyzer VM. We sell the license for this solution and also the professional service to have it. There are different types of business needs of our clients because they're in different business areas. We have firewalls on them. Some of them are on the perimeter network, and some of them are being used as the core network solution. We collect all the logs from their FortiGates. In some cases, we also use FortiWeb, which is a web application firewall. We also use FortiMail, which is an email protection solution or email security solution. We gather all the logs on FortiAnalyzer, and we try to do some flat counting and identify behavior or do behavior analysis from those logs and see what is interesting. Our team analyzes those events so that we can prevent any disruption of service because of the security, vulnerability, or issue.

Generally, Fortinet FortiAnalyzer gives you visibility around the network. You can track and monitor devices and pick the surrounding network. You can see which packets are being sent to the network, who the users are, and what are they using. You can also view the policies and firewall rules that are being used, the IDs that are being connected to, and the IP address a particular user is using. Basically, it's a SOC. It's a security operations device. We use it for continuous monitoring, and it takes a team to do so. In my organization, three to four people are using it on a daily basis.

We use this solution for reporting. We also use it to keep logs for our clients that require logs with a history of more than seven days. In addition to our own firewalls, we have several clients with firewalls that report into the same FortiAnalyzer. We have a private cloud deployment, set up on-premises.

Our primary use case of this solution is to deep-dive and get deep visibility analyzing of logs and proxy of the network. In other words, to get good customized reports.

We use the analyzer for reporting, to know what exactly is happening on the network. We use it to see which accesses are granted, which accesses are denied, which sites are visited, which botnets are coming in, which viruses, etc. The solution is on-premise. Most of the time we set it up on the client's premises, depending on their needs. The cloud is there for testing.

We use the on-prem deployment model of this solution. My primary use case for this solution is for log collection. I have a lot of FortiGates that I have to collect logs from, so I primarily use it for log collection. We plan to deploy a SIEM and we want to try to see how to integrate all the solutions to our SIEM. We are processing for PCI data specifications. We have to respond to PCI requirements, so that's why we are making some changes and acquiring some new security solutions to deploy. Among them, we have FortiSIEM and other security solutions like antivirus.

It receives logs from the FortiGate 5000 Series (about 12 FortiGate blades), and it was configured for keep logs for about 1,050 days. The logs are divided by archive (raw logs) and analytics (logs indexed in a database). The use case is primarily for getting graphical data to make quick decisions.
