Deep Instinct Other Solutions Considered

Puneet Gupta

I've never come across anything like this. I looked at other things as well. I've been hearing about Carbon Black, Cylance, CrowdStrike, and all the other AI & ML Solutions. All of them have limitations in terms of what they can do and how they do it. It's still human intervention. It's still behavioral analysis, heuristics, etc. There's nothing wrong with that, but they still haven't found a way, like Deep Instinct has, to take all that pain away in a single solution. Deep Instinct can actually predict unknown malware that is going to come out, as well, because of the way they have built this technology. It can predict the tiniest mutations of viruses or new malware that is coming out. These guys can predict it straight away, whereas the others can't, until something goes through and they work on it and find to fix it. I.e., post execution, where the damage is already done! Everything they do is post-execution. What's the point? If your technology, which you say is that great, cannot detect earlier on, prevent it before happening, then I don't think it's good enough. That is what I have seen with Deep Instinct. It doesn't even allow something malicious to pass through. It saves a lot of time and effort in cleaning up rather than saying, "Okay, fine, I blocked it. Nothing to worry about." View full review »

Now that I have Deep Instinct, I don't know if one day I will just uninstall my current solution. Compared to various competitors, Deep Instinct has a differentiator: It really does deep learning. Many of those doing machine-learning require the cloud. Deep Instinct is able to do it on-prem and fully self-contained. Once I install it I can even go offline or even go away from the cloud. It gives assurance that you're protected for a long time. View full review »

While there is some malware which can be detected by other applications, all malware can be detected by Deep Instinct. I tested Symantec, and it took two days to install and configure one Symantec Management Server and a client agent, which is troubling. Then, I had to install the other agents and the installation may have taken 30 minutes. Afterward, I could spend three to six hours downloading the database for one machine. I had to do this for every machine. On the other hand, Deep Instinct took me five seconds to install. Even then, Symantec only detects 60 percent of the malware. For my own laptop, Deep Instinct takes less than one percent of the CPU and less than 50MB of memory. In addition, I have a Symantec Endpoint Protection testing environment, and while it's just a testing environment and there is no malware with nothing running on it, Symantec takes about 20 to 30 percent of the CPU quite frequently and 80MB to 100MB of memory. In a production environment of a construction company, Deep Instinct detected 160 malware while Sophos Intercept X detected two malware in the same environment. For unknown malware, McAfee has a 20 to 30 percent fail detection rate. Symantec has a failed detection rate at 50 percent. Traps is better at ten percent, while Deep Instinct is at one to two percent. This difference is due to the behavior in the Deep Instinct engine. View full review »

We evaluated some competitive products, for example, Cylance, and Deep Instinct's false-positive rate was less than one-tenth of Cylance's. View full review »
