The solution is very scalable, especially when connected to the cloud resources.That is primarily because I've seen increased rules. It's kind of caught us a little off guard. With GuardiCore, I have had to deal with their technical support and engineering team in Israel. They are amazing. They are very quick to adapt.

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.

Overview

Darktrace is the world’s leading machine learning company for cyber security.

Created by mathematicians from the University of Cambridge, Darktrace’s Enterprise Immune System uses AI algorithms that mimic the human immune system to defend enterprise networks of all types and sizes.

Our self-learning approach is the first non-consumer application of machine learning to work at scale, across all network types, from physical, virtualized, and cloud, through to IoT and industrial control systems.

By applying its unique, unsupervised machine learning, Darktrace has identified 30,000 previously unknown threats in over 2,000 networks, including zero-days, insider threats and subtle, stealthy attacks.

GuardiCore enables you to spot breaches that other security measures have missed and provides visibility into east-west traffic that up to now has been a considerable blind spot. So you can respond to breaches in a fraction of the time traditional technologies normally take while eliminating the “analysis paralysis” associated with log data overload and false positives.

By focusing only on suspicious activity that warrants investigation, GuardiCore detects breaches in real time and automatically triggers mitigation.

GuardiCore catches attacks earlier in the kill chain, before they can do costly damage.
