Darktrace Valuable Features

Victor  Ibanez - PeerSpot reviewer
Director Comercial México at Aubay

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.

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.

There is an included library of threat detections, not only locally, but threats being experienced all around the world. It is similar to a database of all the threats and what is done by cybersecurity administrators across the internet. By collecting events and information all around the world makes Darktrace more proactive in dealing with threat notifications and cybersecurity detection. The service is very comprehensive and can cover all security areas.

It has simple tracking capabilities and a graphical interface that can assist you with coding, you do not need to be a guru. The dashboards are user-friendly and you do not need an application to access your work, it is all done through any browser. Additionally, there is a mobile application that is one of the best features because you can see any threats from your phone. There is a playbook that can give you instructions. For example, if you see your network servers are being injected by ransomware you can stop the session and be notified of which person on what computer triggered the threat.

The solution is very professional. Everybody would like to have an application on their phone to be more proactive about security anywhere and this solution delivers.

In terms of features, the data or information they collect and unsupervised machine learning are very valuable. Its unsupervised machine learning has reduced our team's effort. Both Darktrace and Vectra work on unsupervised machine learning that learns the behavior or develops a profile on its own, which allows our security team to do some other tasks rather than spending time on Darktrace or Vectra. 

Because of unsupervised machine learning, its detection capability is quite good. Along with that, if we utilize the integration feature properly, the automated incident response capability of Darktrace is quite useful.

One of the things I like most about Darktrace is the fact that it has AI analytics built into it. That merger allows us to have a look at the way that things are working within our company. The fact that it is self-learning is a benefit that has given me 100% visibility across the cloud, my SaaS (Software as a Service) providers, my Office 365 services, within my data center, and also on-premises.  

We are also working with Darktrace on their alpha and beta testing for endpoint security. That is a model that we are thinking about incorporating later. 

Another thing I really like is that it is a very simple product to use. It is very logical and it works beautifully.

Darktrace is a good product, although it depends on how much time you put into it.

The models, triggers, and alerts are customizable.

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.

I particularly like Antigena and the analytics around the real-time monitoring of our network. I also like its reporting because it has got a seven-day reporting period within the system. Every time you run the reports, it gives you the data about the previous seven days. I like that because it is in real-time. I enjoy reading those reports and getting a very clear and decisive idea of what's happening on my network on a real-time basis. I like the actual real-time monitoring of spoofing and things like that. I also like the user monitoring as well as the network logging capabilities.

Overall, I like the system. The product offers us a very good user interface and we've found the network visibility to be very good so far. The solution has one window and shows all networks.

The solution comes in multiple languages, including English and Arab options.

The solution is stable.

We've found that technical support is helpful and available to assist us if we need them.

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 solution is stable.

The product scales well within a network.

The initial setup is pretty simple.

The solution isn't too expensive.

I like the Antigena feature in Darktrace, as it offers immediate response and is helpful.

This product collects more data than your traditional type of software, which is useful for us.

Darktrace picks up anomalies as soon as they arise.

I find it very good in the way that they show the past events, including the attack history. You are able to visualize all of the attack paths and connectivity to see what's happened.

The GUI interface is very good.

They are using the best machine learning and AI at the moment.

The main valuable feature is that we don't need a lot of analysts. With few analysts, we have all the network monitored, 24/7.

The most valuable feature of Darktrace and the most valuable feature is the artificial intelligence module because that is the tool that determines automatically if there is any risk or not in the network.

You don't need a human operator to be involved. The tool can operate by itself... By itself. That's the best and the most important feature because that reduces the amount of time that a person needs to spend on the tool.

The solution is powerful and very useful, it has the ability to avert many attacks.

The tool does almost 95 percent of the work and you only need to run some features to obtain reports.

The most valuable feature in Darktrace is that it gives me a comprehensive, detailed view of my network and whatever is happening inside it. It is a very good tool for me that helps me to remain aware of security vulnerabilities. I know what is happening on my network in real-time and it responds quickly. It is really very useful.

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. 

With Antigena Email, you know from where most of your spam is coming and which country is spamming you a lot.

The primary feature we are using is the artificial intelligence and machine learning functionality for reviewing and predicting network traffic and network attacks. Although we're not yet fully using the product, I like the Antigena feature which is their proactive or reactive feature, depending on the deployed antivirus center. Darktrace is for people who understand network security very well, and who have probably been in that scene for quite some time. If you're inclined towards mathematical machine learning, artificial intelligence, and to some degree, data science, this is definitely a tool for you.

I have used multiple solutions, but its graphical user interface is quite interesting and quite descriptive. There are a lot of video animations, and we can easily see how the data is transferred between various points. That's something really interesting. It is also quite easy to understand for a new user.

It is autonomous. So, it learns. It uses algorithms and AI to learn the common behavioral patterns on the network, and it is able to identify threats based on abnormal patterns.

It is a very good platform for understanding what is going on in your network or in your environment because it checks all the activities. This is the same when I use activities on the device, server, network, and web, it checks it all.

The platform has many modules, and each module examines a different situation in the behavior.
