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.

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.

Rapid7
  • Sometimes Rapid7 InsightIDR will be too locked down and without knowing will block applications and processes needed for day to day operation.
  • System scans with Rapid7 InsightIDR can be very bandwidth-heavy on the network and system resources.
  • From a recent incident, we have seen more and more false positives from Rapid7 InsightIDR on areas that we know are secure.

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.

The biggest advantage it has the lightweight agent and smooth and less traffic chaos in network during log collection. Cloud Security always require extra efforts but InsightIDR reduce that burden as it has highly anticipated agents to which knows what they need to do when they captured malicious traffic.log collection and threat intelligence is major part in and xdr and here it stand out along others in the market, I started my career as qualys administration but I like InsightIDR much now.

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.
