Fortinet Named a Challenger in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Security Information and Event Management

By Jon Speer | October 13, 2022

Fortinet is pleased to announce that Fortinet has been named a Challenger in the 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) for our product, FortiSIEM.

FortiSIEM provides real-time, and patented threat detection by cross-correlating network operations center (NOC) and security operations center (SOC) analytics. FortiSIEM natively supports multi-tenant architectures by reporting on separate network segments and virtual and logical environments. All this can be managed and monitored through its unified console, which reduces the time it takes to detect threats. Plus, its highly scalable design ensures that organizations can process ever-increasing volumes of alert and event data without interruption.

We believe this latest recognition from Gartner is because FortiSIEM meets the broad and complex requirements of the modern enterprise. Over the past year the FortiSIEM team has delivered technical advances designed to better address the ever-evolving threat landscape and the security analytics required to execute on the vision of the cybersecurity mesh architecture.

We believe FortiSIEM has also become a break-out solution in the convergence of IT and OT environments, with recent enhancements including:

  • The extension of FortiSIEM’s powerful asset discovery capabilities through deeper integrations with OT asset management partner products without introducing risk into often fragile OT environments
  • New methods of building integrated IT/OT CMDB, such as organizing assets leveraging the Purdue model — complete with state and performance information
  • MITRE ATT&CK dashboards have been extended to include ATT&CK for Industrial Control Systems
  • Threat Intelligence support has been extended to Dragos WorldView Industrial Threat Intelligence, adding an OT-centric layer to the already rich FortiGuard Indicators of Compromise (IOC) Threat Intelligence service

With more than 200 partners sharing threat intelligence and hundreds of the most common IT products supported right out of the box, FortiSIEM is well-positioned to deliver security intelligence to the cybersecurity mesh architecture of the future—just as it does for the Fortinet Security Fabric today. FortiSIEM is available as powerful on-premises hardware appliances to meet even the strictest of regulatory and air gap requirements, as virtual appliances deployable in virtual and cloud environments for maximum scalability and flexibility, and as a hosted cloud service that delivers all of the power and functionality of the on-prem version but without the administrative overhead.
