Deep Instinct Initial Setup

Puneet Gupta
Director at IT Junction
The Set-up is very straightforward. For deployment, I just need to extract the agent from the console and send it across and run it. It takes 15 to 20, max, to do a small deployment. Depending on the size of the organization, if using central deployment tool, just put it into an image and deploy it. When it runs it starts talking to the console without any other intervention. No issues at all. Depending on the size of the customer, It will take some time to do the initial setup of the console. In total, it will take about an hour-and-a-half to have everything, with the user-group policies defined, the users defined, the sites, and all the other things that can be done without much hassle. I wanted to put together a standard document which would help customers to just do that but, as it's so simple and straightforward, I just keep everything ready on the console. I create the customer details on the console and just send the agent. There's no rocket science involved at all here and that's why it is so easy. There is nothing else to be prepared because there is no system downtime. You don't have to integrate this solution with anything else. It is autonomous and it just does its job. In terms of staff for deployment, it's a one-man show. And there's hardly any maintenance because, once the agent is deployed, there is nothing else to be maintained, unless there is a conflict with something else. Apart from that, the product doesn't require any maintenance. View full review »

The initial setup is pretty straightforward, at least on PC. Mac OS has a few curveballs to work around, which Apple has built in to protect the environment. But once it's in - I've had it on my MacBook Air for eight months without issue - it just works. Deployment takes less than 15 minutes. For the install, the initial scan can take ten hours or more depending on how much data there is to be scanned. But it's typically complete within a day. For deployment, it takes one of our team members a few minutes on the endpoint, or we have also deployed via multiple RMM tools. For the actual day-to-day maintenance and monitoring, and all the security benefits that we stack on top of it, our team is well north of one. When stuff kicks up that merit’s investigation, to validate whether it's an issue or requires further action and escalation, if needed, to the Deep Instinct team, that's what those staff members are doing. They're also making sure that the environment across those 20,000 endpoints - we are approaching 250 to 300 clients - are running clean and healthy on a day-to-day basis. But in general, the tool is effective and efficient. View full review »

It's very easy. You can deploy to many endpoints in a very short amount of time. If you are doing it manually, it's just one simple command. I can deploy it in a number of minutes for one or two machines. Configuring the policies takes about five minutes, and then deploying takes another five minutes or. All in all, ten minutes. In terms of an implementation strategy, to deploy it to the masses it would be easier to go by Microsoft SCCM or any Mass Deployment Tools. You just put in a script and it will run and everyone will be done automatically. You just monitor it through the Deep Instinct dashboard. Usually, in other solutions, you won't get updates until a long time after. Here you see the overall status of every user: Are they registered? Are they deployed? Are they uninstalled? It is very intuitive. You don't need a lot of people to maintain it. You might need two or three people to do round-the-clock standby. View full review »

The initial setup is straightforward and easy. Deployment takes three to five seconds. There is no configuration on the agent side. The policy setting is all on the web console. Usually, we use the same implementation for all customers, this is to use the default strategy. They use a cloud management server. So, I can check logs and do the configuration by simply using the web browser, no matter where I am. This is quite convenient. Also, deployment is easy because it takes one command and three to five seconds. In some cases, when we deploy Deep Instinct, especially in conjunction with existing anti-malware software, we don't need to delete the existing anti-malware. It can co-exist together. Therefore, the company doesn't need to risk removing the existing anti-malware. It's not easy to remove an anti-malware application. Usually, you will have some trouble. View full review »

The initial setup is a little bit complex. The reason is that there is no online help. The deployment takes one to two days. In terms of an implementation strategy, use it together with Windows Defender. We have installed it on Win PCs, Mac, and Android. The installation work is very easy. View full review »
