FortiAnalyzer 10.0
Based on 1 answer
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.

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.
