My advice to others thinking about implementing this solution is if your organizational budget is low, then we go for Fortinet FortiSIEM. Otherwise, if we have enough budget, I would recommend IBM QRadar and or other solutions. I rate Fortinet FortiSIEM a six out of ten.

If you're using it for multi-tenant solutions, it will be pretty good, but it won't support running more than 20 clients on the same platform. It would need more resources. Even if you are implementing it for multi-tenant solutions, you would need implement fewer clients on it so that it has to use less effort. On a scale from one to ten, I would rate it at eight.

I will definitely recommend this solution to others. I am still exploring it, as it is new to us. I need more time to analyze it further. I would rate Fortinet FortSIEM a seven out of ten.

If your use case suits this solution, I would recommend it. If you are a professional operator and you're into pre-investing, and not just paying per use, then FortiSIEM is one of the best options you can have. I rate this product an eight out of 10.

We are actually a reseller service company and we are dealing with the solutions for our customers. We are using the SIEM solutions. We are not a user, we are a reseller. We have many customers. Not all may be using the latest version of the solution. I would recommend the solution. In general, I would rate the solution eight out of ten.

On a scale from one to ten, I would rate the product at an eight. It's been a pretty positive experience overall. I'm still learning the solution and discovering new things about it, however, it has everything I need at the same time.

We're a public utility, so we just use the solution. We don't have a business relationship with the company. We use the latest version of the solution. We use a variety of Fortinet solutions at our organization. For example, we integrate the complete AWS cloud space into that all FortiSIEM. I'd recommend the solution to other organizations, especially those that are cost-conscious. Compared to there solutions' it's rather easy to implement. I'd rate the solution overall seven out of ten.

My advice would be to know this solution, and study it well to avoid mistakes. The configuration is simple, not complex. It's a very good product. I have not experienced any issues with it. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

We use an on-premises deployment model from our perspective and a hybrid model from a customer/user perspective. I will recommend this solution to others out there looking for a SIEM solution. I've already done a few events we were talk about FortiSIEM and its advantages. I do, however, think the main dashboard where you create and design your graphs could do with some improvement improved. On a scale from 1 to 10, I will rate this solution an 8 to ensure there’s continuous improvement.

We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd recommend this solution to companies that have a FortiGate firewall and are on a limited budget. I'd rate the solution six out of ten.

We use the public cloud deployment model. I like the product, and I would recommend it, but I much prefer Splunk. The beautiful thing about Fortinet is that they have integrated many, many solutions. Their platform is very powerful. In the case of the customer, if he decides to choose Fortinet, he'll largely be stuck with that one vendor. Fortinet does integrate with a few other vendors, but it's best if you use only their solutions. It's more efficient, you have more manageability and you get more value that way. I would rate the solution seven out of ten.

Properly review this solution and your requirements. See how it will scale up to cloud requirements. Cloud technologies are becoming more prominent and you should see how you will be able to manage it with this tool. It's a good product but you need to be well trained. If you don't have good training then you won't maximize the benefits of this product. I would rate it a seven out of ten.

I would rate it an eight out of ten. They should implement better behavior monitoring features to make it a perfect ten. It should also have better integration with their own products. They have a lot of interfaces for other products but it's not so easy to integrate their own devices. I would recommend this solution to someone considering it.

The interface is easy to use but initial setup is not . The connector in the core has FortiSIEM support from the vendor. FortiSIEM supports a lot of vendors. It is a good product for us. I rank it as eight on a scale from one to ten. because It doesn't support a lot of vendors and also the FortiSIEM still not common to use with fortinet partner maybe they doesn't give adequate training.

We are very impressed with this product. However, they have to fix their backup and recovery procedure and provide a good DR service without charging for a secondary license. I would rate this solution a seven and a half out of ten.
