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.

Cons

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.

It was more advanced and comprehensive . The personalized dashboards and view was the major likeable difference . The correlation could help us analyze better and was more effective , the drill down features gives more information at one go
