Cons
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.The solution would benefit from automation. Currently, you have to know what you are searching for.Tracing and correlation of events could 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.

I would like to see simple processing and reporting online.They could also increase or improve the scalability because to my knowledge the biggest bandwidth can only support up to 10 gigs of input.If you have another endpoint product running on the same machine, you have to fine tune functions from FireEye to avoid performance and user experience issues.The integration and display of the dashboards have to be done better.I hope the solution can be used in cloud systems going forward.
