We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The ability to detect activity on the network is very useful to us. Even if it's not necessarily an illegal activity, if it is abnormal activity, it is able to detect it and notify us.""The ability to see what we have not seen before is most valuable. It is very interesting to find out the most vulnerable devices in our network.""Darktrace is very useful for us because it has a large number of models for detecting threats.""It's a very stable product.""The models, triggers, and alerts are customizable.""The most valuable features of Darktrace are its full capabilities. You have visibility of everything.""One member of staff is enough for deployment and maintenance because Darkforce is AI-driven. It does a lot of things by itself.""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."

More Darktrace Pros →

"Guardicore Centra offers the best coverage specifically in backward compatibility with legacy operating systems.""The real bonus is the fact that we can secure applications, all the way down to the individual services, on each host. It's actually more granular security than we can get out of a traditional firewall.""I found the solution to be stable.""The most valuable feature is the visibility of processes and connections.""We like the centralized management of the firewalls. Until we installed Guardicore Centra, we managed all our firewalls individually, so making changes was complicated, difficult, and time-consuming.""From day one, you get threat intelligence. It will immediately block active threats, which has been useful."

Cons
"Darktrace could improve by being more user-friendly.""Getting logs from different sources can be a challenge.""It would be useful if there was a way to check to see if there are certain devices that are not in sync with the solution. I'm not sure if this is an option or not.""It's a very complex platform.""In an upcoming release, there could be more customizable playbooks or a library of playbooks to choose from.""The initial setup is more complex and time-consuming than some solutions.""They just need to make it a little bit more accurate as far as their alerts are concerned. It does generate some false positives that you have to tune. You have to do a lot of tuning when you first get it because of the false positives, but once it is all tuned up and ready to go, it will do its thing from there.""There aren't so many third-party vendor platforms natively integrated with the platform."

More Darktrace Cons →

"Supports become difficult when it's for a big organization. For a small organization, medium organization, it still makes sense, however, for a big organization, it makes life difficult.""The maps could go a bit faster. They are useful but slightly slow.""Sometimes, the speed needs improvement, especially when it comes to the generation of maps, where it can be a bit slow.""The long-term management of the security policies could be improved with some kind of automation platform, something like Chef or Puppet or Ansible, to help you manage the policies after day-one... to then manage the policies and changes to those policies, going forward, through some type of automation process is not turning out to be really easy.""Customers would want to see the cost improved.""In our version, when using the terminal server, we cannot exclude user tasks for each session."

    Reviews from Real Users

    Imad A., Group IT Manager at a manufacturing company, says, “"I have found the most valuable features to be artificial intelligence for cybersecurity, advanced machine learning capabilities, enterprise Immune System, Antigena Network, and Antigena Email. The way the solution detects the threat over the network before it spreads is very good. It notifies you of what the threat is exactly doing and gives you all the details about the execution of that application that had created the threat over your network."

    A Security Engineer at a real estate/law firm states, "The Antigena feature is most valuable. Once it learns your environment, Antigena can step in and block a denial of service attack, a ransomware attack, or just about anything that doesn't belong in the environment. It can detect any type of attack that hits the environment because it understands what normal looks like for the network. It is very useful for an autonomous response."
