FortiSIEM 6.1.0 - Released


FortiSIEM 6.1.0 is released!

This release brings about a new OS, FortiSIEM UEBA (powered by FortiInsight technology), improved Analytical query management, and the ability to run simultaneous Analytical searches in the GUI and able to monitor the status of Report Bundles. Check here What's New in 6.1.0

A significant part of the release for FortiSIEM is the change the underlying OS from CentOS 6.x to CentOS 8.2 and in the process, we re-architecture how the appliance is deployed. As a result of the OS change, any upgrades from 5.x to 6.1.0 are more involved than normal and will require additional planning, so please ensure that you follow the process and have good recent backups.

There are some known limitations with the 6.1.0 release and we are working to address these, they can be viewed here Release Notes | FortiSIEM 6.1.0 | Fortinet Documentation Library

One thing to note, in FortiSIEM 5.3.3 we added a great feature called pre-compute to significantly improve certain types of reports speed, this is not available in v6.1. If this feature is needed, you should consider waiting for the 6.x release that supports pre-compute What's New in 5.3.3

Let us know how you get on.
