Darktrace Valuable Features

Victor Ibanez
Director Comercial México at Aubay

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 most valuable part of the product is the whole package. The features included in the Enterprise Immune System are complete and effective. Its detection engine is ridiculously good.

The Ability to drill right down into an event that has been identified as something of interest so that you can be assured if it is a valid event and therefore not suffer from loads of false positives. Once that initial assurance and confidence was there, you could easily rely on the dashboard and minimise the risk of constantly drilling into each and every event but pick the ones with most risk.

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.

One of the things I like most about Darktrace is the fact that it has AI analytics built into it. That merger allows us to have a look at the way that things are working within our company. The fact that it is self-learning is a benefit that has given me 100% visibility across the cloud, my SaaS (Software as a Service) providers, my Office 365 services, within my data center, and also on-premises.  

We are also working with Darktrace on their alpha and beta testing for endpoint security. That is a model that we are thinking about incorporating later. 

Another thing I really like is that it is a very simple product to use. It is very logical and it works beautifully.

Its most valuable feature is its ability to identify malicious connected IPs from outside and the attacks that get through to the inside.

Once installed, it starts picking up and learning the network very well because it's got a powerful AI integrated into it.

The user interface is very intuitive.

The Dynamic Threat Dashboard is very nice, as it lists all of your threats and rates them, and then you can choose whether to investigate further.

This solution has some good features for customization in terms of how you're tagging your network, which basically makes it easier to identify what is actually happening. You can see where the traffic is going, where it is coming from, and that sort of thing.

Darktrace has quite a few inbuilt features such as its own packet analysis module, which is an offshoot of Wireshark.

This solution has some powerful APIs, although we do not use that functionality at the moment.

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.

Overall, I like the system. The product offers us a very good user interface and we've found the network visibility to be very good so far. The solution has one window and shows all networks.

The solution comes in multiple languages, including English and Arab options.

The solution is stable.

We've found that technical support is helpful and available to assist us if we need them.

The most valuable feature is the alerts. The alerts are meaningful. The event rolls up into meaningful and actionable alerts rather than just being noise.

I find it very good in the way that they show the past events, including the attack history. You are able to visualize all of the attack paths and connectivity to see what's happened.

The GUI interface is very good.

They are using the best machine learning and AI at the moment.

The main valuable feature is that we don't need a lot of analysts. With few analysts, we have all the network monitored, 24/7.

What I like about Darktrace is that you can quickly identify threats. I did a trial where I injected a small malware to see how long it takes for the program to identify it and to see that there is an anomaly. The response was good and it took the program less than a minute to detect it. The fast response time is definitely a plus.

I like the Antigena feature in Darktrace, as it offers immediate response and is helpful.

This product collects more data than your traditional type of software, which is useful for us.

The most valuable feature in Darktrace is that it gives me a comprehensive, detailed view of my network and whatever is happening inside it. It is a very good tool for me that helps me to remain aware of security vulnerabilities. I know what is happening on my network in real-time and it responds quickly. It is really very useful.

The most valuable aspect of the solution is that you can see all the process mistakes. You can see all the different types of unusualcsituations that you usually don't see in a traffic solution.

The primary feature we are using is the artificial intelligence and machine learning functionality for reviewing and predicting network traffic and network attacks. Although we're not yet fully using the product, I like the Antigena feature which is their proactive or reactive feature, depending on the deployed antivirus center. Darktrace is for people who understand network security very well, and who have probably been in that scene for quite some time. If you're inclined towards mathematical machine learning, artificial intelligence, and to some degree, data science, this is definitely a tool for you.
