I think if you manage a large number of mailboxes, you need a reliable solution to protect corporate email from any threat. This solution uses AI to analyze emails to check if they're safe or if it's a risk for the organization. It has a good UI (all in English), and the more you're using it, the more you get. There are a lot of metrics and indicators to help the email security admin.

Microsoft

Overall we found Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics to be a comprehensive cyber security tool to guard our network / organization and would highly recommend this product to other enterprises. In an era of increased cyber security threats - we feel using this product allows us to be more vigilant in order to head off any potential threats before they adversely impact us.

Pros

Darktrace

  • Monitors your network for unusual behaviour; as it learns what is normal for your network, you don't need to worry too much about things that are normal for your organisation, but might be considered odd in other places, triggering as alarms. It can also detect more subtle changes such as a device accessing a server but at an unusual time.
  • There are a large number of models that are used to create the alerts, which can all be customised, and you can also create your own from scratch, to allow you to tailor it perfectly to your situation.

Cons

Darktrace

  • Really had a poor time of identifying devices and what the device's purpose was - a simple nmap scan did a better job. The problem is they expect you to fine-tune the results - which is exactly what you would expect - but day one it found over 2,000 servers (and I only have 112).
  • Really had a hard time separating network traffic into locations - I use distinct subnets for my buildings, but there was no good way to create a logical map of my traffic internally. Did not garner a sense of trust that it was seeing everything.
  • Sat through a few "analyst" reports - which showed me possible threats in my environment. I am already using a few open source tools, and they actually found more than the analyst reports. Also, there was no way to get the reports on your own - you had to work through their analysts to get the information.

      Darktrace

      Darktrace support is excellent in my experience. They send a competent engineer on-site to provide on-boarding training. They were also very responsive in responding to questions and concerns. Having an individual point of contact who is a competent network and security engineer is not a common experience, at least for me.

      Alternatives Considered

      Darktrace

      The Darktrace user interface was improved. Darktrace provides more metrics and more info to decide if an email is malicious or not in doubt case. Darktrace provides a lot of info about the email being analyzed, if there was a previous communication between both parts before for example, it's so easy to deploy.

      Microsoft

      When making the implementation decision to engage Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics or a competitor we considered a few options. Ultimately we were deciding between Microsoft and Forcepoint. What ultimately drove us to implement the Microsoft solution were 2 key things. First, we felt it was a more reliable product with better customer support. Second, we felt the value proposition was slightly superior given what is included in the cost vs Forcepoint.

      Return on Investment

      Darktrace

      • Darktrace is covering some lack of security issues.
      • Darktrace helps the company to follow some compliance obligations.
      • Darktrace can't solve all issues. It needs to work with other Security tools (e.g Splunk).
