Darktrace
Darktrace is a product well suited for the vast majority of infrastructures and helps monitoring and responding to threats based on the network in a very elastic way. This is a product based on on-premise infrastructures that hosts its machines locally, of course it can be technically difficult to monitor an entire On-Cloud infrastructure but even there there's room for sensors and monitoring, not to mention the SaaS and mail integration that completes the product.

Rapid7
Where Rapid7 InsightConnect excels is in environments needing the whole suite of virus protection and monitoring. In our environment we use it to make sure we have visibility over all endpoints, servers, hosts, and clusters to make sure that there are no vulnerabilities being left unattended too. It is also best in large environments. Since there are many endpoints, the automation from Rapid7 helps manage them all in an efficient manner.

Cons
Darktrace
  • There are few areas that I would say need to be improved; their customer support portal allows you to log tickets with any suggestions or things you feel the product is missing, and they will generally show you how to achieve what you want, or in some cases, introduce it as a feature in a later update.

  • It would be great if Rapid7 InsightConnect could be configured based on pre determined specifications when installing the agent.
  • We've noticed that at times, there are certain network parameters needed in order for Rapid7 to collect and report data efficiently.
  • Sometimes there are issues with the discovery scan in Rapid7 making it hard to configure in the beginning.

Support Rating
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.

We did NOT select Darktrace. OSSIM/AlienVault is a more mature product and it provided better intelligence and reporting. The end user interface is much easier to use - and you can tell built form engineers who have had to do the work. My suggestion for anyone considering Darktrace, is to get the price upfront; do a 30/60 onsite trail; and do the same thing, at the same time, with AlienVault. AlientVault will win every time. I say that because that's exactly what I did.

Palo Alto was slightly cheaper, but more complex and would need the training to be effective. Splunk was comparative from a price standpoint, but the automation features of Rapid7 InsightConnect outweighed those of Splunk SOAR. Honestly, all of these are great choices, but for our environment, it made more sense to go with Rapid7.

Return on Investment
Darktrace
  • One big positive is how it helps us with the security assessments that clients have done on us. They are looking to see if we know how we might have unusual/malicious traffic running on the network.
  • If you have a small network and only need 1 appliance, it can be a good ROI and peace of mind.
  • You could go down a hole in trying to spend time looking at all of your traffic with this software. You need to focus only on what it is showing as potential bad traffic.
