Fortinet
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.

LogPoint
LogPoint is incredibly useful for pulling information from various log sources and combining them together to offer insights into suspicious or potentially malicious behaviour. It is not intuitive and can take some time to get used to. Once you're up and running though, it's easy to onboard new log sources. Search queries can again be tough to get used to, but LogPoint support is really helpful and can offer assistance with writing more complex searches.

Cons
Fortinet
  • 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.

Overall, LogPoint is pretty easy to get started with but faces issues with specific things (syslog on custom ports, script log collection, etc.).

LogPoint
LogPoint support is outstanding. They are incredibly helpful, and on occasions have proactively identified issues with our setup, and logged cases on our behalf before we had even noticed there was a problem. If there is a search we need to write that is beyond our skills, LogPoint support can typically write it for us within a couple of days. They are always very responsive, and I am yet to have a bad support experience.
