Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We needed a better insight into network security threats that might be in our organization. DarkTrace provides an invaluable service of not only giving us the ability to dig deep into possible network intrusions but also has a weekly summary of possible network security issues. One of the main reasons we chose DarkTrace was that they provided the weekly report put together by a security professional. We review this weekly report and take action as needed.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Darktrace is used across almost all of my organisation. It allows constant monitoring across all of our networks, and because it has the ability to learn "normal" behaviour for your network, it triggers alerts when it sees behaviour outside of this range. It's allowed thorough monitoring of our systems, 24/7. You can download packet captures, which can then be loaded in to wireshark, of traffic from devices on the network, and the data for these captures are held for some time as well - the exact time varies depending on the amount of traffic, but I've normally been able to retrieve traffic data from a few weeks previously when needed. There is also a mobile app that you can configure to allow monitoring of alerts on your phone. On a few occasions in the past, when something alerted that was potentially damaging to the network (such as a malware outbreak at one site), a Darktrace employee contacted me directly to let me know that there was something potentially high priority going on.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I worked with Darktrace in a couple of organizations (from 300 to 1000+ users). Darktrace is a beneficial product to keep track of lateral network traffic inside of the organization. It augments the firewall, which looks at the traffic moving in and out of the company's LAN. Darktrace utilizes SPAN ports on switches to get the traffic, that's the only configuration needed outside of the Darktrace appliance, making installation relatively easy. If organization has multiple locations, either multiple Darktrace units will be required, or the network must be configured to forward SPAN traffic. Darktrace does provide beneficial insights into network activity inside the network, such as the use of obsolete protocols, DLP breaches, etc.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Brought it in to act as an intelligence gatherer for network traffic - specifically to look for anomalies and help identify potential threats and suspicious activity. I installed it at the network core, so it was able to view all traffic (well, mostly all traffic - we had a few issues with some of the VLANs and my switches are configured for fault tolerance, which it also had an issue with) moving from inside to outside.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Darktrace in our main office. It helps us meet security assessment requirements of our clients that want to know how we know if there are bad actors in our environment.
