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

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""Vectra's licensing model could scale to our research network, which has multiple, 100-gigabit links.""The pricing is very good. It's less expensive than many of the tools out there.""Cost is a big factor, as always. However, I think we have a very good price–performance ratio.""The pricing is high.""From a pricing perspective, they are very commercially competitive. From a licensing perspective, just be conscious that some of their future cloud solutions come with additional subscriptions. Also, if you're outside of the US, you will get charged freight for the device back to your country.""There are additional features that can be purchased in addition to the standard licensing fee, such as Cognito Recall and Stream.""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."

"Our customers feel that the price of Darktrace is quite high compared to other solutions.""When it comes to large installations, it can be expensive, but for small accounts it's fine.""It is expensive. I don't have the price for other competitors.""It is a very expensive product.""If you consider the features and the cost of market leaders, we are satisfied with the pricing.""It was $3,600 a month or $2,000 plus or so. I am not sure. Its licensing is pretty simple.""The pricing is a little high compared to the competition.""This solution is expensive."
