Solution has picked up files that other platforms don't plus it uses machine learning and AI protection
Removes the need to strike a security-productivity balance, while finding numerous risks that competitors miss
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
On the management side, we liked the way it displays things.
The solution is extremely scalable. It's got the hybrid functionality, it's got the system functionality and cloud functionality as well.
The solution is stable.
The solution is pretty easy to scale.
It handles situations that the other threat management tools wouldn't find. It has worked well covering the weaker sides of the other products that we're integrating.
Centralized dashboard online which can be used for managing a huge product.
Even if an endpoint loses connection to the Internet, I know that endpoint is protected against 99.99% of the threats in the wild today.
Specifically for a Windows domain environment, the product can be customized and pushed via GPO or SCCM without issue.
It's just a single agent that has everything in it... With the EDR solutions, you have to install it, then you have another service history installed, and you have behavioral analytics, etc. With this, everything is in a single small "box," a small agent that has pretty much got everything.
It has the lowest false-positive ratio that I have come across. I have only had one which was a legitimate file that I had to whitelist. It was for one of the applications I was trying to install and integrate. But the false positive ratio is very low.
Instead of having features like rollback and after-event actionable stuff, the whole premise and the context of the solution is to actually prevent these malicious attacks from happening to begin with.... The ability to prevent threats is the most appealing aspect. It absolutely, 100 percent helps with real-time prevention of unknown malware. That's the strength of the product.
It has a very low false-positive ratio. That is important because it means we're not wasting time... We're able to run that entire 20,000-endpoint base with just a handful of engineers.
The most valuable features are the static/dynamic analyses. Deep Instinct's predictive model has very high accuracy and provides threat information for unknown malware, such as malware classification, static analysis information, and sandbox information.
Deep Instinct complements the solutions we already have. You don't need to rip and replace any antivirus or endpoint that you have. It's easy to use and it's easy to have it side-by-side with other solutions. That makes it really easy to have an additional level of protection, rather than to hassle with doing solution migration.
The CPU consumption is low compared to what I have been using in my current environment, which is Sophos. The footprint is a lot smaller, about a quarter of Sophos. It is very small.
Its false positives are very low, because the behavior analysis engine double checks them.
It should provide more details about the events that they have detected.
I would say one thing that they might need to bring in is protection for mobile devices.
The solution needs better dashboards that are easier to use.
The security scripting needs improvement. It needs deeper security for scripting.
I would like to see a better UI in terms of sifting through more specific data and providing analytics. A little bit more would be nice.
Work on the math model. We are catching a lot of false positives, which gets to be a pain at the start of a deployment.
If they can bring some additional, complementary solutions, like network scanning and the like, that will help. If they had some sort of a firewall which could help detect DDoS attacks and other things, it would be an improvement
It would be nice if there were options where, if I have to do SIEM integration, I could do so from the UI: Just pick and choose what SIEM solutions the customers use and have options to have out-of-the-box connection facility.
I would love to see a really exceptional, outstanding level of reporting. I know that's like asking for a unicorn to leap out of the sky with any of these products... When everything works, clients began to wonder: "Everything's fine. Why do we need you?" That's where the reporting capabilities would allow us to really demonstrate: "Hey, here's what's actually going on, Mr. Customer."
The Management Console is not localized.
I would like to see improvement in the user interface so that the user has more control. For example, it would be good if a user could change their grouping if they want to be part of another group. Or if I want to right-click and scan a specific file that I just imported, that would be helpful. Sometimes you just want to do an extra scan to make sure you're safe.
I am looking forward to them adding Linux in Q1 or Q2 of 2019, as this is often requested by my partners and customers. Currently, Deep Instinct only has Windows, Mac, Android, and iOS.
Pricing and Cost Advice
We would just add more if there are new users, but right now you just need one license for per user.
Our licensing cost for the solution is around $4,000 for six months. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.
Shop around for sure and be assured the price you pay will be close to other solutions available, but even at a slight mark-up from the other solutions, you are getting real endpoint protection versus nothing more than a cheap security blanket that might keep you warm at night.
Do not get hung up on price. You pay for what you get and expensive will hurt one time, where cheap will hurt forever, especially if you fall victim to a ransom attack, etc.
Pricing and licensing are very straightforward. It's two SKUs, one is for the console and the other is for the client.
One thing about their licensing program that I like is that just one covers the server as well as on the endpoint as well as mobile devices. There is no complexity in calculating how many SKUs I need for mobile, for laptop, for desktop, and for servers. It's very simple and that makes it much easier to budget.
In comparison to the other products out there, it's exceptionally competitively priced. When you consider the lower administrative overhead that it facilitates, it's an absolute value.
The pricing is a little bit expensive but we are satisfied with DI's performance.
If I include the false positive rate and the detection rate in the comparison, Deep Instinct is worth its price.
