Fortinet FortiAnalyzer 400E - network monitoring device is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from It supports SQL for logging and reporting What is our primary use case?It receives logs from the FortiGate ( /products/fortinet-fortigate ) 5000 Series (about 12 FortiGate blades), and it was configured for keep logs for about 1,050 days. The logs are divided by archive (raw logs) and analytics (logs indexed in a database).The use case is primarily for getting graphical data to make quick decisions.How has it helped my organization?FAZ has improved the organization because it stores events in the past so we can correlate incidents using another monitor tools; the problem is that it can´t recognize logs from FortiController blades, not even specifying it as a syslog device so this is a big lack. Devices from another brand are compatible only as syslog devices if they support.What is most valuable?It supports SQL for logging and reporting. Log data is inserted into the SQL database for log view and report generation.Another feature is the custom reports, where you can obtain a chart builder from a log view: traffic, event, or security log.What needs improvement?It is very important that FAZ can support FortiController as the architecture designed for the network. FortiController should be registered in FAZ at least for event logs.For how long have I used the solution?One to three years.What do I think about the stability of the solution?No issues at all. It is a reliable product.The problems come when you are using different OS versions between FortiGate ( /products/fortinet-fortigate ) and FortiAnalyzer.What do I think about the scalability of the solution?No scalability issues. You should know how many logs per second or minute are generated in your network to avoid issues with scalability.How is customer service and technical support?The technical support with Fortinet has risen considerably. Now, they respond in three to four hours instead of two days.Which solutions did we use previously?We did not use a previous solution.How was the initial setup?The FAZ includes a wizard, which is very simple to follow during the initial setup.What about the implementation team?We implemented it in-house. We have had some experience implementing FAZ.What was our ROI?I do not have this value yet.What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?The cost and pricing should be in accordance with the calculation of log storage capacity for a time period required for historical analysis.Which other solutions did I evaluate?We did not look at any other options, because Fortinet was elected for use by the end user.What other advice do I have?My only experience is with a very important customer, the most recognized in Latin America.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:We are Grupo CEPRA, a channel for Fortinet sales.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Our company uses a virtual infrastructure. Implementing this product supplements the protection of our infrastructure. Valuable Features:The key functions for us are the next-gen firewall and network analytics. To ensure the best protection, we need to constantly analyze the situation in the network, as well as internal and external threats, as well as actual AV protection. The Fortinet products and FortiGuard services give us all of this.Improvements to My Organization:Our company uses a virtual infrastructure. Implementing this product supplements the protection of our infrastructure.Room for Improvement:The current version of the product is easy to use. Based on my experience, I can't recommend any areas of improvement. It's important, however, to know what you want prior to implementation. Otherwise, it may not meet your future needs based on the initial configurations.Use of Solution:We've used it for about four months.Deployment Issues:During installation, we had no problems with deployment.Stability Issues:We have had no problems with stability.Scalability Issues:We have had no problems with scalability.Technical Support:The level of local customer service was very good. Per our request, tested the product. We got all answers to our questions from technical support. I rate both of them highly.Previous Solutions:We used Wallix AdminBastion together with it.Initial Setup:The initial setup was straightforward.Implementation Team:A successful implementation for this product depends on how clearly the customer understands what they have and what they need in the future. In most cases, the customer turns out to be unsatisfied when it's unclear that they knew what they wanted prior to implementation. My main recommendation is to implement it together with the vendor, writing down the tasks, solutions, and the expected result before you begin.Cost and Licensing Advice:I think Fortinet has a balanced offering of prices and licenses.Other Advice:Fortinet's strategy is based on the dividing the product line depending on functionality. This allows customers to choose only the necessary feature set for them.The Fortinet product line is wide – you can choose from SOHO to Enterprise, and from hardware to virtual solution. The presence of a free client (Win/Android/OS X) provides protection for client workstations. Each customer will be able to find the most suitable solution for them.The balanced policy product line and licensing allows customers to choose only the necessary feature set for them. Also you can easily migrate from other vendors using single tools for conversion. Another tool helps you plan the placement of Wi-Fi points in the building. Also, it's very important that equipment has international and national certification such as PCI, DSS, etc. Presentation of products for SDN (Software-defined Networks including SDDC - Software-defined Data Center) confirms the company's leading position in the market.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I'm able to see each IP separately, including user name and other stats, but the admin UX needs improvement. Valuable Features:* Real time reports* Reports on who tried to attack* FortiGate monitorImprovements to My Organization:Before using FortiAnalyzer, people would surf wherever and we could not monitor or see which computer in the company goes where. Everyone had the same IP. Now, using the analyzer, I am able to see each IP separately, including user name and other stats. One time the police called and told me someone from the company was breaking the law and I was able to monitor the specific computer.Room for Improvement:They should learn from CheckPoint how to design UX for admins.Deployment Issues:No issues encountered.Stability Issues:It's very stable.Customer Service:I've not used them yet.Technical Support:I've not used them yet.Previous Solutions:We previously used a previous solution.Initial Setup:It was straightforward.Implementation Team:We did it in-house.ROI:It's a great ROI for the price.Cost and Licensing Advice:Only get it if you need it.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
