i am looking for monitoring appliances that capable of getting and analysis  logs from Cisco Devices, Fortigate UTM Computer running, Microsoft operating system,  IBM UTM and Sun Devices.

some has advised me to go to fortianalyzer but i have doubt about it that it can handle logs other than Fortigate.

is there any suggestion that can help in choosing the right.

FortiAnalyzer can store and report from any syslog source, the question is whether all you want is passive monitoring ... remember, anything goes wrong with a device and it stops reporting, you won't know about it ...
Look into active monitoring solutions, like e.g. OpenNMS, which can both act as syslog receiver, and do active monitoring on devices, services and lines.

I also recommend opennms (http://www.opennms.org/) it do syslog, snmp, notifications for any device and runs on windows, linux and mac os x. Very easy to install and setup.

If you don't feel up to the task of implementing the system, there are service providers that will set up the system for you - which means it's sort of a "hardware based appliance". After all, e.g. the FortiAnalyzer is just a Linux system with application software on it ... check with opennms.com for details ...
