Darktrace

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.

Vulnerability assessment is a requirement within the solution. Where Organization has on-prem and cloud workload and on-prem workload has to connect locally (on-Prem). Primsa Provide capability of hosting solution on-prem or on cloud-based on organization requirement and license can be shared between both On-Prem/Cloud workload. Where organizations want to have the flexibility of using Twistlock or Redlock (Vulnerability assessment for OS or Monitoring/remediation of cloud workload) with a single license. Prisma Enterprise license provides the capability of using Twistlock or Redlock on a need basis

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.

Palo Alto Networks

  • Efficient and real-time--Palo Alto Networks Prisma Cloud monitors the multi-cloud environment in real time without any lag. The radar in the tool is a single pane of glass for all the containers and images in all your environments. Radar gives a 50,000 foot view at a glance and lets you know what the pain points are in the environment and where more focus is required.
  • Serverless functions and static repositories are supported out of the box. The user needs to make a successful connection, and after that, the tool continuously monitors the functions and repositories at all times and provides alerts and incidents in case something major is happening in the environment.
  • Minimalistic Graphical User Interface--Lets the user do a lot with fewer clicks. You can easily navigate through the tool with relatively few clicks and get your work done.
  • A number of authentication mechnisms are supported out of the box, one of which--AD authentication--is the most popular.

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.

Palo Alto Networks

  • IAM control need enhancement as there are few features missing
  • Support on all Container solution such as Pivotal PCF
  • Number of Security Policy for scanning is less and required more policy to identify a security issue
  • Cloud is not hosted in India
  • Firewall Policy on Container required some enhancement for blocking communication between workload
  • Enabling Proxy for connecting on-prem workload container to cloud
  • Solution should not require write access to a cloud account. It should have capabilities of using existing cloud API for remediation or making changes on Cloud

      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.

      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.

      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).
