FortiAnalyzer

FortiAnalyzer is a must have when you administer multiple FortiGate firewalls in a defense in depth enterprise environment. Total visibility can be achieved across multiple physical and virtual firewalls. Complete analysis of your threat landscape is possible along with real time detection, compliance reporting, and wholistic firewall rule analysis and reporting. Eliminating shadow rules, tuning unnecessarily permissive rules, automation and other analysis are built in to this easy to deploy software.

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

I will say that the LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform is well suited for an organization that is not very big but has multiple log sources. Or a lot of non-technical employees who do not know how to code or do write custom queries. Typically it is a good fit for universities and mid-range startups. This has an excellent interface, dashboard, useful for managing roles, but it doesn't provide the level of customization that a technical person with knowledge of coding probably would prefer. Software like Splunk and Elastic Search are much more flexible in terms of the granularity of the search.

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

  • LogRhythm is a great SIEM to learn content on because the building blocks are very intuitive and easy to implement. All of the concepts relevant to content development are literally represented as drag and drop building blocks that can be easily manipulated.
  • The statistical building blocks contain powerful anomaly detection capabilities that are extremely difficult to implement in other SIEMs or not possible at all.
  • LogRhythm does better event classification than any other SIEM by far. My team typically drops all classification schemes from default installations of SIEMs and rebuilds them from scratch. I can actually use LogRhythms event classifications in rules without worrying about excessive partial matches or correlating unwanted events.

Cons

FortiAnalyzer

  • Administrative Domains and Software Versions are difficult to maintain
  • managing different FortiOS versions gets complicated quite easily
  • Administrative Domains must be well architected from the beginning
Shahab Razak | TrustRadius Reviewer

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

  • While searching for log events is quick, the interface isn't as user-friendly as other SIEM products.
  • Many of the administrative/management functions are only available through the full LogRhythm desktop console, not through the web console.
  • The LogRhythm agent, when used for FIM and RIM, is very memory intensive.

LogRhythm is focused on SIEM. That is their core business. Cost of operations, feature set and ease of use. The Log Rhythm support team is outstanding. Overall reliability is good. Reporting module needs some improvement and LR is promising that there will be significant improvements in future releases.

FortiAnalyzer is easy to deploy are ready to use right out of the box. The user interface is intuitive and the reporting engine is very customizable however most of the 'canned' reports are usable right away. It is easy to add firewalls under management and event correlation happens immediately. FortiAnalyzer is a great log aggregator for all of your firewalls and then upload meaningful data to a SEIM.

LogRhythm does a rather decent job of making the functionality advanced (allowing for advanced keyword & field searching, use of "AND" as well as "OR" statements in the search bar) while keeping it accessible (by not requiring a specific syntax to do quick searches). This combined with a user interface that has headings and labels that are intuitive is very helpful.

Support has always been fantastic for this product compared to many other support providers I've worked with. They are always very friendly and seem to be well trained and knowledgeable and never have to wait long for a solution. We usually get the issue fixed in the first call, but also we really haven't had to use support a ton so that's also a plus

  • Buy professional services.
  • Buy and implement the system if possible.
  • Remember that the end point log configuration may require other teams in your company to assist you in getting the desired logs from all resources.
  • Attend the end user and daily operations training after a period of usage so you are not overwhelmed with information on concepts not yet seen.
  • Don't be afraid to call for help during your first months of use.
  • Don't close any ticket until you are sure the expected results are verified.
  • Use the community forums to discuss issues with your peers.
  • Watch the training videos offered by L R University.

Alternatives Considered

FortiAnalyzer

FortiAnalyzer is significantly cheaper and a better value for the money especially if you have FortiGate firewalls in the datacenter or in the cloud. FortiAnalyzer manages physical, virtual, and cloud firewalls in a single pane of glass providing a wholistic enterprise view of your security landscape. Compliance reporting comes built-in with the most popular reports ready at a click of a button. FortiAnalyzer is a great aggregation point before uploading logs to a SEIM / SOC tool.

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

LogRhythm was simpler to set up and configure as well as extract information from. It also was less intrusive in terms of how many appliances were needed to implement. We were up and running within 5 hours to start accepting log sources. We selected LogRhythm as well since support is based in the USA in Colorado.

Return on Investment

FortiAnalyzer

  • we were able to retire 3 legacy security tools in favor of FortiAnalyzer
  • Automate 155 security tasks and reporting
  • one click compliance reporting for PCI-DSS
  • Enterprise security governance
  • Visualize the security landscape
  • Eliminate and or prune unnecessary rules
  • Tune overly permissive rules for tighter security
Shahab Razak | TrustRadius Reviewer

LogRhythm NextGen SIEM Platform

  • The ability to search through logs in a centralized location really helps us to provide RCA (Root Cause Analysis) to management for outages. This helps us to quickly identify the cause of outages and thus saves money due to reduced downtime.
  • Being able to configure the alarms to provide real-time notification (and responses) to security events helps to prevent potential loss due to compromises (such as a fraudulent wire transfer).
  • The initial investment in LogRhythm SIEM is somewhat expensive, however, the appliance is built to your specific needs so you won't have to constantly be upgrading the device as your company grows.
