We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

The installation and configuration were slick.We receive infrastructure security warnings from it. So, we know what is going on and what needs to be addressed.It has the ability to install agents. It is pretty straightforward. You can automate the process pretty easily.It is a very stable product.The quicker implementation of changes to our infrastructure from Alert Logic tell us if there are any problems.It improves our security. Before, we didn't have anything scanning our containers. We had software scanning all the physical servers, but we had nothing to scan our containers. With Alert Logic, we can do that.

The solution is stable. We've never had any problems with it.Ability to see events and exactly what traffic or website the device had tried to connect to that raised the alert or issue.Its most valuable feature is its ability to identify malicious connected IPs from outside and the attacks that get through to the inside.The Dynamic Threat Dashboard is very nice, as it lists all of your threats and rates them, and then you can choose whether to investigate further.A simple, powerful AI solution that just does all the work for you when you turn it on.Darktrace is extremely stable.What I like about Darktrace, is that you can quickly identify threats.The most valuable feature is the alerts. The alerts are meaningful. The event rolls up into meaningful and actionable alerts rather than just being noise.

This product needs to mature more. While it is a good product, there are some areas where it needs work.They have ideas and email you whatever they find, but they don't have a dedicated security team who will work on an attack or a specific security instance.I would like to see it do initial scans and start capturing data, which it will truly analyze, not just be a reporting system saying, "Here is an email. Here is an email. Here is an email."The product needs to mature. We don't want to be bombarded with unnecessary issues and have the real ones slip through.The documentation, especially with the initial setup, needs improvement.I would like more data on the alert payload. It would be good to have the ability to customize the alert payload to add whatever data that we want on there. Right now, it is a bit limited.

The solution would benefit from automation. Currently, you have to know what you are searching for.The product doesn't have an endpoint agent that can react to triggers set on the device,Darktrace needs to automate the reports of false positives, botnets and everything.This is quite an expensive product so the pricing is something that can be improved.It could build in integrations for some complementary products, but it has an assistant plugin so this is not really a big deal.Darktrace does not have any capabilities to configure.The program is quite expensive.I would like for the product to work on the endpoints as well. I would like to see enhanced visibility into the endpoints and network but this solution only sits on the network itself.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Alert Logic has better competitive pricing than some of its competitors.Almost any product that is on the AWS Marketplace is super easy to subscribe to.Our ROI would probably be zero. We don't even use it. It sits in there. We get emails and just delete them. Around the world, we don't even use it.
