We use the on-premises deployment model. It's a quite clever solution. It has a lot of potential, but I'd advise those considering to hold off implementing the solution until after a newer version is released. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten. If they added automation and included it in the price, I'd rate it higher.

Darktrace is a good product and it can be implemented on premises. Someone who wants to take care of the lateral movement and configure it, will love what it offers. I rate this solution a seven out of ten. I would like to see supervised machine running in the future.

I would suggest to anyone considering this option to identify if this is going to be a monitoring tool to supplement an existing system or if this is going to be another product in your existing security suite of tools. I would rate this product an eight out of 10.

Based on our experience with DarkTrace, I would advise that if they are comparing prices, ROI and everything, I think Darktrace is better than FireEye. On a scale of 1 to 10 I can rate it a 6. I give it a 6 because it's been a year learning everything, and technology, attacks and patents are changing everyday.

We're very pleased with Darktrace so it is a bit difficult to pinpoint areas for improvement. It covers all of our needs and from what I can see, it does the basics very well. There are many advanced features, also. This is a solution that I definitely recommend. It offers a proof of value rather than a proof of concept, where they run the tool in your network, let it learn and then catch any vulnerabilities. Then you will actually see the value of the solution, either potentially blocking any exploitive threats or not, but its a really good thing to go through. To do this, I think that you have to go through an actual partner unless you're in a location where Darktrace has a physical office. In any event, I strongly recommend going through the proof of value to see if you like it. If there is a charge then it is definitely worth it. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

My advice to others is always to keep an open mind and to find out as much as you can about the program to see if it offers what you are looking for. I rate Darktrace eight out of ten.

My advice to people and organizations considering this as a solution is: go buy it. They shouldn't waste their time fussing and looking around at other solutions. It works. I've done administrating for several years, and this is the one solution that works. It complements what you have, whatever that is. It is like a plug-and-play component. There is no solution that does what it does. You even have some excellent systems like Cisco's Stealthwatch — these are just the three packet analysis technologies. Darktrace is actually DPI (Deep Packet Inspection), which in my markets is now called the threat level buttons. It is really an advanced product and everything just works ridiculously well. If I had to rate the product on a scale of one to ten (ten is the best) I'd give it an actual ten. It is the only product I use that I would give a full ten. It's hard to achieve a ten as you have to be better than everything and everyone else. It does deliver on what it says it can do.

My advice to someone considering this solution is to install it, conduct a pilot, and see. You need to see how easy it is to implement and you need to add it to install. You need to see what kinds of results it provides and compare it to your existing tool kit. The product demonstrates its actual capabilities when it's actually working. It's difficult to comprehend what it can actually do but it does give you an added level of visibility. It has good capabilities. I would rate it an eight out of ten. Cross-correlation with the endpoint based activities would be useful, like the ability to look at the deep supervised learning engine of the artificial intelligence unit and being able to take input data from the endpoints in order to apply the rules. It works on supervised learning and rules but I would like to be able to do things on different feeds as well. It has a very good graphical user interface. The ability to get a console on the mobile phone and being able to respond and do basic incident response capabilities remotely is also a good feature.
