We changed our name from IT Central Station: Here's why

Fortinet FortiSIEM Room for Improvement

Principal Cloud Architect at Viria Security Oy

This solution is not very good on non-API features and lacks that functionality. We've raised multiple tickets to Fortinet about this and they are pending there. The product development hasn't been fast enough to ensure it can function on the cloud. It's excellent when you download and get the security locks but in areas like Microsoft 365, you have to fetch the security access using APIs and they don't update quickly enough. If Microsoft announces a new service today, we have to wait at least six months before FortiSIEM start supporting it. It's crucial that the API support is updated, for now FortiSIEM lacks functionality compared to its competitors.

Its training can be improved. Its price also needs to be improved.

The initial setup is complex. They need to make it easier in terms of implementation. That said, all CM implementations are quite difficult. It may not be a fault of this particular product.

The policy editing should be easier. Right now, it's too hard. 

Some of the parts of the mapping tool should be in the product itself. It would make our efforts easier.

The product is quite expensive. It's something clients always comment on.

The solution is almost 100% perfect. It's already quite simple and easy to configure. In that sense, no improvements are needed.

You do seem to be constantly learning new things with the product. There's a bit of an ongoing learning curve in terms of usage. Right now, I'm learning about higher availability and that's an ongoing process.

It would be good if the solution offered even more configuration options, especially in relation to the VPN so that it continues to be a very flexible option. 

The solution offers both command line and GUI visualizations. They need to ensure that their GUI offers just as much flexibility on the configuration as the command line structure.

We expect the latest patch from Fortinet FortiSIEM to give the ability to work with signature files.

The patch management on the software needs to be better. We have not received frequent updates from their site. That's the major challenge for us. Going by the latest trends there are lots of cyber attacks happening in the entire world. All of the latest trends, patches, file updates, and hash updates should be released as soon as possible, whilst an attack is detected the patch has to be released on time.

Network Security Engineer at Go Faster

This is a great product for everyone. The disadvantage is the product portfolio.

We need more incidents automatically to protect our network.

We need to see incident reports about the event log, without events from the administrator or through human interaction.

In the next release, I would like to have automated generation reports of incident reports.

With FortiSIEM, the issue has to do with the ways we can generate a report. It's not as flexible compared to that with other SIEM tools, like Splunk.

When you work with a service provider who is using FortiSIEM as a service for other clients, you cannot run more than 30 clients on one tool. You cannot onboard, which would consume more resources and would make it slower. Also, resource consumption would be high.

Fortinet FortiSIEM could improve by having better integration and extensions. This would benefit by allowing us to give more rules.

There is no proper guide for integration or configuration. They need to improve the documentation library.
