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.

Oracle Dyn Managed DNS

Oracle managed DNS becomes very heavy when there is an ample amount of DNS being managed. However, the DNS creation and updating takes very less time to propagate and is very easy to use. So, for an organization, where there is a modest amount of DNS to manage, it works very well and gives a splendid experience. So, considering the complexity of managing the DNS for an IT company Oracle Dyn managed DNS is the best option to opt.

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.

Oracle Dyn Managed DNS

  • The portal management is very easy to use in comparison to other companies for DNS management.
  • The have expert mode that allows for multiple edits on records and allows you to make notes for each edit on a zone.
  • The have TTLs that are as low as 30 seconds.

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.

Oracle Dyn Managed DNS

  • Simpler billing interface
  • More responsive sales team to provide relevant QBRs to ensure proper and best practice use of the product/platform
  • Integration of the Dyn ECT Managed DNS with Dyn Domain Registration would be a nice feature as currently I have to manage two consoles and billing accounts.

This is the only real gripe we have with Dyn; their web-UI can be remarkably painful to use.In the "simple" editor, DNS records are arranged in a kind of "node" view, where each record is a node and any records of the same name or longer (i.e. all records called "record.example.com" or "other.record.example.com") fall under it. This creates an odd sort of hierarchical view that's not really representative of the zone file.The "expert" editor doesn't have an actual delete button, just a checkbox. If you want to update conflicting record types (for example, replacing an A record with a CNAME) you have to check the box for the record being deleted, save changes, create the new record, save changes, and finally publish changes.Dyn uses a publish model for changes, where all changes you make are staged and can be reverted or published all at once. This is fine, except that the publish/revert dialog is in a different page. This is nice when you have many changes, but very annoying when you're changing just one or two records across multiple zones.These are relatively minor issues in an otherwise good platform; annoyances more than deal breakers.

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.

The support team at Dyn has always been very helpful and have tried to answer our questions to the best of their knowledge. We have never had any issues from support tickets and they are often resolved in a few hours

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.

Oracle Dyn Managed DNS

We use both Oracle Dyn Managed DNS and Amazon Route 53. We like having our main DNS provider outside our cloud provider in case there's an issue with Amazon and we need to point things somewhere else temporarily. But for all the smaller stuff and internal stuff, we use Route 53 successfully.

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).

Oracle Dyn Managed DNS

  • For the law firm its being used for, it keeps their remote users working. For law firms, time is money, usually every 15 minutes lost can be a big deal to them.
  • Sometimes it has switched when its not supposed to, and causes downtime. No real way to inform users when the switch is happening, it would be great to have an email alert we can not only send to ourselves but a notification to primary and technical partners in the firm so they don't have to yell at us like something is broken, instead they are aware it had to change.
