Customers really appreciate that.""The most valuable feature is the monitored support behind it.""The feature that I have found most valuable is that the configuration and the usage of the product are not so complicated.

"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.""What I like about Darktrace, is that you can quickly identify threats.""Darktrace is extremely stable.""A simple, powerful AI solution that just does all the work for you when you turn it on.""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.""Its most valuable feature is its ability to identify malicious connected IPs from outside and the attacks that get through to the inside.""Ability to see events and exactly what traffic or website the device had tried to connect to that raised the alert or issue.""The solution is stable. We've never had any problems with it."

Cons
"I think the technical support could be better.""A support center in Asia is needed.""I would like to see support for mobile protection and some additional reports included.""Could have better integration with other security applications.""The solution just needs to keep maturing and they need to keep up with the threat landscape to ensure they're protecting clients well as time passes.""Most of their times are in Greenwich Mean Time. I would like to see more local time zones.""In terms of what could be improved, I would say the usability of this product for new threats. Meaning, not everything which is new is properly seen by the product and not all the required actions are taken.""Compliance reports need to improve."

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