"Nextgen Security"

What do you like best?

This product falls in line with what I consider to be advanced endpoint protection. I really like the ability to do root cause analysis as well as being able to see things in real time. The machine learning aspects are robust and I can easily see Darktrace becoming a go to security product.

What do you dislike?

Some of the earlier interfaces needed a little bit of work. Although with recent versions that seem to have identified and remediated any concerns that I had.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We are about to put a POC in place. I believe that is a good place to start although we jumped ahead and now are looking to be more strategic with the product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I did some trial testing of our internal network and determining the best way to identify and block new devices that weren't approved or sanctioned. In testing I realized this did much more and helped us with external storage and security needs as well.

"Good tool for gathering network information"

What do you like best?

Darktrace did a decent job of identifying potential issues with weekly summary. It is an easy tool to implement and the insight is valuable in determining what devices exist on your network. This is a necessary part of the layered security model needed to fight today's ever changing threat landscape.

What do you dislike?

The reporting is a bit weak and it doesn't yet integrate easily with other products for sharing data. The discovery piece needs more work on determining what the devices actually are. There are some other more generic products that do a better job of finding and identifying information about the individual devices.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Has the potential to be the go to tool for network traffic insight. I am going to push for further testing of the product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to map out our network and determine that we had some unknown vulnerability prior to implementing Darktrace. We are not currently using Darktrace but can see us doing so as the product matures.

What Other IT Security solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Innovation "

What do you like best?

I really like how it handles the traffic and shows you how a computer its interacting with the whole environment.

What do you dislike?

it kinda hard to search events the first time, you get used to, but it could be improved, to much eye candy for me, but it does the work

Recommendations to others considering the product

its a good options, still will need a SIEM but its a good complement.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

it help to track events in a unique way, we can know wherever an user interacted with some computer or not, and its easy to see in a visual way how it comunicates with other devices.

"Darktrace is intense"

What do you like best?

The amount of information you can get from the system is intense. We have been able to get very detailed analyst of breaches to track down exactly what has happen and how they were able to get in.

What do you dislike?

The amount of data that is giving can be overwhelming. The "packet capture" screen gives you great insight but you need to know how to do the filtering. They provide great support and even came on-site to show us how to use the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take any training they offer. If you are a security knowledgeable person they this tool will really complement your toolbox.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to identify breaches and the exact path used to access our systems. We are also able to see what is causing a user to be locked out in AD, what device of theirs is causing the lock outs.

"Threat Detection and Prevention"

What do you like best?

Darktrace has many advanced features and reporting capabilities. It captures all packets that flow on the network, and uses that data to create a "trend" of normal and anomalous user activity over the period of 2-3 weeks. Afterwards, if it detects any anomalous activity, it generates alerts and can even block the traffic using the Antigena component. There is also a mobile app available to easily view the captured data.

What do you dislike?

Darktrace requires an IMAP server to generate email alerts and to enable the functionality of the mobile app. Also, some of the reports may be difficult to understand due to the high level of detail.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Request a trial before signing the contract.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Antigena component is set to automatically block threats such as ransomware and other anomalous user activity.

"Great Product, amazing and scary what this product can do"

What do you like best?

everything about this product we liked, the features and the ability of this product are amazing. You just plug it in and let it run and do its thing. Support from the company was great and very helpful and was always available.

What do you dislike?

The price of this product is definitely something that a small or even midsize company can probably afford. Would be nice if they offered something for that market.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go to a trade show and gather as much information as possible about this product. And ask for a trial demo period. They came and set up a system at our facility for a 30 day trial and trained us right on the spot.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This Product does everything!

"Not There Yet"

What do you like best?

Slick interface, and the science behind the product is sound.

What do you dislike?

Hard to use. No report writer - totally dependent on them for information. Did not properly identify end points by function - ? Needs a lot, a lot of tweaking to make the data accurately reflect my environment. No easy way to create locations and allocate devices by locations. In my opinion, there at ed a lot of more mature products, especially for the price.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Product is very pricey. If you do not have someone dedicated to this product, especially to collect and share the data - as it has no reporting or tie ins to other systems - you may be better off with something less expensive that does more.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Best use is to detect security issues. It did an ok job.

"Cyber security game changer"

What do you like best?

The best part about this product is hands down the customer service. Never act bothered and always go above and beyond. As far as actual product trait, the ability to go back and review past network traffic to see how a certain action came into play is very useful. Being able to back track and see what is causing an actual attack, whether stopped or not, is the only way to prevent them in the future and this software allows that.

What do you dislike?

It may be a little too advanced for a smaller company such as the one I used it with. The technology is so advanced that it isn't cost effective for a company who isn't often susceptible to web attacks but would be great for large entities and/or government agencies.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Cyber security- it stops and identifies every attack and allows you to see where it came from.

"Great place to be"

What do you like best?

Work culture, team work , fun atmosphere

What do you dislike?

can be hard to get message across within organization

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recommend everyone considering darktrace to spend 2 hours per week for 4 weeks on the product and thats all it takes to get used to it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Able to capture unknown threats using the concept of machine learning and block those threats immediately.

Tool with a great ROI in security space and can help organization. Large companies use darktrace not only for IT but also for OT and IOT space as well.

the reports generates out darktrace are CISO focused and helps the security team, top-down, to address basic security issues.

Another big benefit is the added service where an analyst can be available 24x7 to help you with the security issues, and with respect to maintenance there almost zero overhead on the maintainence as it is all managed remotely.

"Darktrace Review"

What do you like best?

It's advance endpoint protection is the best around I have found. It quickly identified potential issues. You will not complain about a lack of information it provides.

What do you dislike?

It is very difficult to get a grasp of the system and actually use it. The previous updates had issues with their respective interfaces but newer updates seem to have fixed that problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend this product and suggest it to anyone in the market for a system that truly does it's intended job.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving the needs of our business. Keeping the company as well as customer's data safe and secure. As well as the ability to track fraud.

"Darktrace REVIEW"

What do you like best?

Cool interface, easy to use. Darktrace helps to get a very detailed trace and analysis of breaches, network traffic behaviour, etc.

What do you dislike?

While packet capturing, if the filtering feature to capture network packets can be enhanced, it would be great.

Recommendations to others considering the product

An excellent alternative to wireshark.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software works as a replacement for wireshark. We had wireshark before and darktrace is far better in use, installation, configuration and collects data far more efficiently.

"Incredibly cool, incredibly effective "

What do you like best?

After being given darktrace we were entranced, machine learning is an incredible addition to security and we identified what could have been a severe security issue that we would never have known about before darktrace.

What do you dislike?

It is somewhat flashy, as someone who prefers a command line interface the map view is a bit different.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We identified a strange login which turned out to be harmless, just an IT guy logging into a different computer, but could have been very problematic.
