FireEye Helix

Overall, we've had a great experience with FireEye Helix and would recommend it to organizations looking to improve their operational security. We've found Helix to be a great way to collect and analyze revenant security events and take action. Having a single pane of glass makes this process much more efficient. Prior to moving to FireEye Helix, we had different teams sending data to different applications, which resulted in confusion and critical data being missed.

FortiSIEM

If budget is an issue then Fortisiem fits well, as it's more than a typical SIEM solution. It can integrate with environmental monitoring systems, UPS HVAC etc. It can be used as the CMDB solution etc. If fine-tuned and looked after it can actually bring a lot of value for less.

FortiSIEM

  • Non-intuitive/unattractive user interface
  • Too many features that will usually remain unused
  • Very crowded (too many icons) portal
  • The reporting feature is confusing, e.g. you have to click on the "refresh" button to get the result of your inquiry. The report generation process can be much easier, as the user interaction is not pleasant.

We've been fairly happy with FireEye Helix support overall. Most issues are resolved the same day the case is opened.

Alternatives Considered

FireEye Helix

I find Helix to be super-efficient and able to cut through the noise. Previous installations of LogRhythm and Splunk resulting in an overwhelming amount of noise (out of the gate), and we had to constantly tune out false positives. Helix is different. Out of the gate, Helix provided higher fidelity hits, and our teams don't spend half their day turning out the noise.

Return on Investment

FireEye Helix

  • Helix has had a significant impact on CSOC visibility efforts across the organization.
  • Helix fills the logging and alerting gaps that are missing across the infrastructure side.
  • Having a single pane of glass allows teams to more efficiently run incidents. Additionally, Helix is integrated with ServiceNow providing enhanced and efficient case management for all Helix alerts.

FortiSIEM

  • Other SIEM solutions were cost prohibitive at the time of purchase (2016).
  • Just like any other SIEM, it helped draw a better picture of our current security posture.
