Fortinet FortiAnalyzer Valuable Features

Daniel Coleman - PeerSpot reviewer
CEO/CTO at Eunoia Design

One of the most valuable features is the ability to analyze data in real-time using AR features to pull data from the industrial DB. You can know what is going on and see in milliseconds where the network is underperforming. 

FortiAnalyzer also has good storage capacity for storing the logs. The notification capabilities are excellent, too. It sends alerts so always know what is going on. For example, if you're on a break and something goes wrong, it lets you know so can immediately go back and fix it. You don't need to be constantly sitting in front of it.

Log collection is the most valuable. The UI looks great. It has a very good look and feel. We don't have the need to use solid state drives. We use mechanic drives, and we don't see any performance issues, so basically, it is doing fine.

I have found incident management and also identifying new threats, analyzing the network traffic, and finding out the issues with the network traffic such as any security issues to be valuable. I also like the compliance reports.

It is a very stable and scalable solution.

Overall, the product is quite good. It integrates well and has good reporting and logging.

Fortinet FortiAnalyzer is simple and reliable. It does what the product says it would do. We have a lot of replacements in Turkey, Palo Alto, Check Point, and Forcepoint. We are replacing these various vendors with Fortinet products. But there are some software issues, like bugs or bug fixes. Otherwise, we are very happy with Fortinet products.

How the applications are working has been quite useful. It helps the users and how they are using the applications. We can see, for example, the utilization of all of the security fabric in a report. We are getting PDFs and Excel sheets that we can use to analyze everything, including how users are working on our internet services. We can generate reports quite easily.

It's been generally very efficient.

It is user-friendly and has a good GUI. 

The product works well with other products. 

The solution scales well. 

It's stable.

Logging is the best feature. 

I like how everything is integrated with the FortiGate devices, FortiAuthenticator, and other fabric devices. You're able to see all the login details for the administration of FortiGate. It offers great user connectivity using that Fortinet embodiment of the user. It gives you all those login information details.

It's easy to set up.

The solution is stable.

It can scale well.

FortiAnalyzer's reporting features like graphs, threat intelligence, and vulnerabilities analysis are helpful. Fortinet knows how to do reporting. You can customize your reports to show exactly what you want to analyze. It's user-friendly and doesn't require a lot of effort. 

The hub is another feature that's good to use. FortiAnalyzer can be connected to other Fortinet devices via the hub. It isn't restricted, and it's all controlled by FortiManager. It can also integrate all the opcodes to one box.

FortiAnalyzer's best feature is centralized log analysis. It's based on SQL database, so I can fully customize my report, chart-wise and log-wise, and can create as many reports as I want without any limit. It also has an important feature called Indicators of Compromise, an artificial intelligence feature that detects and alerts you when there is a breach in your entity.

FortiAnalyzer has a user-friendly interface with a quick response and good analytics. It's very secure because it's taking the log from the devices on a secure channel, so there is no problem with that in your network. Because you're getting the information from a secure channel, it's also possible to back it up in a storage solution.

Based on the logs of Fortinet FortiAnalyzer you can have it trigger actions. For example, if the log has a word or a sentence you specified it can send an alert to an email address or SNMP trap.
