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

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The license is based on the concurrent IP addresses that it's investigating. We have 9,800 to 10,000 IP addresses.""Their licensing model is antiquated. I'm not a fan of their licensing model. We have to pay for licensing based on four different things. You have to pay based on the number of unique IPs, the number of logs that we send through Recall and Stream, and the size of our environment. They need to simplify their licensing down to just one thing. It should be based on the amount of data, the number of devices, or something else, but there should be just one thing for everything. That's what they need to base their licensing on. Cost-wise, they're not cheap. They were definitely the most expensive option, but you get what you pay for. They're not the cheapest option.""We have a desire to increase our use. However, it all comes down to budget. It's a very expensive tool that is very difficult to prove business support for. We would like to have two separate networks. We have our corporate network and PCI network, which is segregated due to payment processing. We don't have it for deployed in the PCI network. It would be good to have it fully deployed there to provide us with additional monitoring and control, but the cost associated with their licensing model makes it prohibitively expensive to deploy.""The pricing is high.""Vectra's licensing model could scale to our research network, which has multiple, 100-gigabit links.""We are running at about 90,000 pounds per year. The solution is a licensed cost. The hardware that they gave us was pretty much next to nothing. It is the license that we're paying for.""There are additional features that can be purchased in addition to the standard licensing fee, such as Cognito Recall and Stream.""The pricing is very good. It's less expensive than many of the tools out there."

"This solution is expensive.""When it comes to large installations, it can be expensive, but for small accounts it's fine.""It is a very expensive product.""The price of the solution is not cheap. It is not a one-time purchase, there is a subscription that needs to be paid every one to five years depending on your choice. It is expensive but you can reduce the price by only using the services that you want.""Our customers feel that the price of Darktrace is quite high compared to other solutions.""It was $3,600 a month or $2,000 plus or so. I am not sure. Its licensing is pretty simple.""The pricing is very flexible for Darktrace. Sometimes, a customer does not have the appropriate budget, but Darktrace can handle that. They offer monthly payments, so the customer can acquire the solution very easily.""The pricing is a little high compared to the competition."
