A great solution for threat detection that intelligently and immediately responds to attacks across your enterprise system

What is our primary use case?

We use it to deploy to enterprise customers to provide them with a complete, reliable and intelligent threat detection and response system.

Pros and Cons

  • "A simple, powerful AI solution that just does all the work for you when you turn it on."
  • "It could build in integrations for some complementary products, but it has an assistant plugin so this is not really a big deal."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to people and organizations considering this as a solution is: go buy it. They shouldn't waste their time fussing and looking around at other solutions. It works. I've done administrating for several years, and this is the one solution that works. It complements what you have, whatever that is. It is like a plug-and-play component. There is no solution that does what it does. You even have some excellent systems like Cisco's Stealthwatch — these are just the three packet analysis technologies. Darktrace is actually DPI (Deep Packet Inspection), which in my markets is now called the…

Scalable with an easy initial setup but technical support is terrible

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution on the VPN for protection purposes. We utilize its antivirus capabilities as well.

Pros and Cons

  • "The initial setup is a breeze."
  • "When it comes to dealing with updates, there are often bugs on the solution. They should do a lot more testing before they release new versions."

What other advice do I have?

We're using the latest version of the solution. I would recommend the solution. It doesn't take too many people to set it up or maintain it, like, for example, Cisco, which is a bit more complex and difficult. I would rate the solution seven out of ten, and that's mostly due to the fact that their support is so awful right now. If their support was better and more reliable, I would rate them much higher.

A mature product with good integration capabilities, however, it needs to be more affordable

Pros and Cons

  • "Cisco has always been a premium product. There's a lot of other entry-level solutions. This is more robust."
  • "The company needs to make its solution more affordable to make it more accessible to larger markets. Otherwise, it's seen as an enterprise-level solution that small or medium-sized organizations can't afford and therefore they won't even look at it."

What other advice do I have?

We use a few different Cisco solutions. We're a Cisco partner. We have a business relationship with the company. We're dealing with the latest version of this particular solution. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. The value for money it should be there. Which means good features, good functioning things are there, but they need to make it more affordable for big market. If they were able to price the solution to make it more affordable for more clients that may not be enterprise-level, they've have a bigger footprint.

A scalable, stable solution that has effective suspicious IP protection

Pros and Cons

  • "With the IP address flag, I was able to see that I was being hacked. The moment there was an interaction between somebody on my network and that IP, the solution was able to flag it, and we were able to protect ourselves."
  • "Sometimes when you want to group a set of ports, and communicate with Palo Alto, you cannot group TCP and UDP ports together. This needs to be adjusted."

What other advice do I have?

We use both the cloud and on-premises deployment models. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Good Ecosystem, and easy to manage

What is our primary use case?

We are integrators. We work on integrated systems. Our clients use this solution to know what is happening in the network and to analyze it.

Pros and Cons

  • "I like the sales operations testing. and support."
  • "I would like to see integration with third-party tools to improve the visibility of the dashboards."

What other advice do I have?

For others who are interested in using this solution, I would recommend it. I like working with this solution. I would rate Trend Micro Deep Discovery Inspector a nine out of ten.
