Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The product offers us a very good user interface and we've found the network visibility to be very good so far.""It is very stable and easy to use.""I particularly like Antigena and the analytics around the real-time monitoring of our network. I also like its reporting because it has got a seven-day reporting period within the system. Every time you run the reports, it gives you the data about the previous seven days. I like that because it is in real-time. I enjoy reading those reports and getting a very clear and decisive idea of what's happening on my network on a real-time basis. I like the actual real-time monitoring of spoofing and things like that. I also like the user monitoring as well as the network logging capabilities.""It is a stable solution.""Ability to see events and exactly what traffic or website the device had tried to connect to that raised the alert or issue.""I find it very good in the way that they show the past events, including the attack history.""In terms of features, the data or information they collect and unsupervised machine learning are very valuable. Its unsupervised machine learning has reduced our team's effort. Both Darktrace and Vectra work on unsupervised machine learning that learns the behavior or develops a profile on its own, which allows our security team to do some other tasks rather than spending time on Darktrace or Vectra. Because of unsupervised machine learning, its detection capability is quite good. Along with that, if we utilize the integration feature properly, the automated incident response capability of Darktrace is quite useful.""It is very easy to work with Darktrace once you know how it works and the type of permissions that you need to get related to the security over a network. The interface is awesome. I'm sure that you have seen Ironman, and you know Jarvis, the computer of Tony Stark. The interface of Darktrace is very similar, and you can see in 3D, like a hologram, the whole network, traffic, and all the traces inside the network. The interface is awesome, and it provides a lot of information. At least for us, it is very easy to handle this interface, get the reports, and do the interpretation of those reports. Darktrace also provides mobile monitoring. With an app on your mobile phone, you can view the information live, which is very useful for area directors and field engineers. Darktrace can be also correlated with any type of big data solution, such as Splunk."

"The web interface is great — very useful and user-friendly.""Very intuitive and easy to set up.""If you were on other solutions, you would notice that they use agents from third-party, from open-source, from a native OS, or from other tools. Here, however, it is an agent from Rapid7 itself. This adds to the solution's overall capabilities.""Rapid7 InsightIDR integrates well with other solutions. It's also easy to configure because Rapid7 InsightIDR has a lot of instructions posted on their website that customers can follow if they need to get the source log.""It is a very stable solution.""Simple configuration and automatically syncs to the cloud platform."

Cons
"A reporting portal could be a great addition to help customize reports.""The interface is too mathematical and it should be simplified.""It would be helpful if they could recognize incidents and simplify the customer's challenge to identify what is happening.""It would be useful if there was a way to check to see if there are certain devices that are not in sync with the solution. I'm not sure if this is an option or not.""Its threat analyzer could be better. It should also have agents. They should improve this product by installing agents for the machine to get more visibility. Currently, they are monitoring only the network. They should also monitor the agents from inside. It should also have a better pricing plan because it is an expensive product.""The pricing model is a little too high and could be more flexible.""Getting logs from different sources can be a challenge.""In an upcoming release, there could be more customizable playbooks or a library of playbooks to choose from."

"InsightIDR is only available in a cloud version. Some of our customers prefer an on-prem solution because they want to manage the security within their environment.""Inability to get access to compliance reports within the solution.""Cloud risk assessment is one area where I think they need a lot of improvement.""The interface for doing investigation needs to be enhanced with minor improvements that would make it more useful.""The dashboard is an area that could be simplified.""Lacks a mobile application."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""It is a very expensive product.""It is expensive. I don't have the price for other competitors.""It was $3,600 a month or $2,000 plus or so. I am not sure. Its licensing is pretty simple.""Our customers feel that the price of Darktrace is quite high compared to other solutions.""The pricing is a little high compared to the competition.""If you consider the features and the cost of market leaders, we are satisfied with the pricing.""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."
