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.

I believe that McAfee Enterprise Security Manager is best-suited for anyone in an office setting with a computer containing sensitive information. McAfee Enterprise Security Manager is constantly working to make sure that your device is free from an threats. Our field workers, however, probably wouldn't have a need for McAfee Enterprise Security Manager. They do not use computers for work and have no sensitive information stored in a work-related cloud.

  • This is a core McAfee product that is still getting support.
  • It has a substantial amount of compatibility and integration with other products.

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.

  • The user interface is not the best, it is still based on Flash player (but they have plans to migrate to HTML5).
  • While the "user" interface is pretty straight forward, the management interface is fairly complicated.

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.

McAfee Enterprise Security Manager overall is a great tool. It is effective in today's setting, wherein lots of potential threats are lurking. Its operations within the network are seamless. Users won't even notice that a SIEM is working in the background. But in today's trend, most of the businesses is heading towards the migration to cloud, which McAfee should improve its integration with.

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.

We selected McAfee Enterprise Security Manager because the pricing is competitive in the industry. It is very reliable. The vendor offers good support in real time. Offers the results that we have been looking for. The ability to get the logs may be of last 2 years in a matter of seconds. The ability to retain logs for a very long time.

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.
