Technical support is fantastic.There are fewer false positives when using this solution.Tech support is helpful.It is quite easy to implement.It is a simple solution that makes scanning easy. You just give it a scheduled task, and it will do everything for you.The reporting is fine.I find the most valuable features are the continuous monitoring. Even on premises, there is constant monitoring.Monitors workstations and servers for vulnerabilities and creates reports.

Cons
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.

It's quite complex on the way it is set up, so it takes a fair bit of time in order to get your head around it in order to deploy it. Once you've deployed it, then you're never confident on the versions of the browsers and the SSL certificates, etc. You have to always go back into Qualys and check.I do not like that all of the data is stored on the cloud.When you want to cover yourself for scalability, you will be charged for the number you place on the scan itself.It is more expensive vs. other products on the market.The only improvement I can think of is on the implementation side. At times it is a bit slow.They have integrated with other third parties, but it is still not viable.When tested on Zero day, there were errors.Improve the API speed.
