Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
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.
A good network security system for medium-sized businesses with an excellent GUI interface that gives a graphic view of network status.
The solution is extremely scalable.
This is an easy means of setting up high-availabilty firewall protection.
The initial setup is easy. It's the easiest firewall installation process on the market. I work with three or four other products and this one is the easiest.
The most valuable feature of this solution would be the caching feature.
It has a lot of scalability abilities which makes it easy to scale.
What I like about this solution, is that it is the only solution that currently offers VPN for clients.
The technical support is very good and the assistance they gave was very good.
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.
While it is a solid solution, there are some product limitations which exclude it from deployment in some situations.
The solution needs to adjust its pricing models. With the way they are structured, everything is very disparate and sold separately, and, depending on the solution, it can get quite pricey.
The support is not very good, but the product is stable so it is not so much of a problem.
In terms of what needs improvements, the troubleshooting could use improvement. When we work with other products like Cisco ASA, Palo Alto, and Check Point, we see a big difference in the troubleshooting. It's not easy to find a report.
Their technical support needs improvement.
In terms of what needs improvement, the pricing could be lower. The price is very steep.
In the future I would like to see more user-friendly dashboards and a drop in the price.
The GUI could be improved to make it more usable, easier to administer, and easier to configure.
Pricing and Cost Advice
It is inexpensive considering what it can do and the competition.
Pricing depends on implementation and licensing choices and is usually not a practical budget choice for small businesses.
We pay $100,000. That covers the cost of the hardware that we run the VN's on. That also includes any SGNA costs for the internal support tech.
Be sure to choose a licensing plan that leaves a little headroom so performance is not an issue.
We pay an annual license fee. It is rather expensive so I would like to perhaps see a drop in price in the future.
The program is expensive.
