Let's talk about three important areas of SIEM deployments:  functionality, scalability, and flexibility.

 

Functionality

What does a SIEM do?  Wikipedia [1] suggests: Data aggregation; Correlation; Alerting; Dashboards; Retention, and; Forensic Analysis - a good list of foundational features, but these are taken-for-granted in a modern SIEM. What else does a SIEM do for you,? What makes your SIEM a winner in your environment?

Scalability

How big will your SIEM deployment be on day 1? How about the day after? A year later? Sizing a SIEM deployment can be tricky, but is a critical part of deploying a solution that will deliver the log ingestion and query performance that you need.

FortiSIEM's Rapid Scale Architecture utilizes a scale out architecture and shared storage to scale from a small single node deployment up to a large multi-node cluster. The architecture is easy to understand and easy to scale; it consists of just three node types: supervisor, worker and collector. Need to scale your FortiSIEM? Add more workers and collectors.
