Organizations are experiencing highly targeted and complex attacks that traditional security solutions miss. Exposures have increased as organizations move to the shared security models of AWS and Azure. The volume of native alerts and detections is on the rise, and organizations need to focus on the right information at the right time within the right context.
Organizations need solutions to detect these threats that have bypassed prevention technologies in the cloud, data centers, and enterprise networks. Vectra provides visibility into malicious behaviors from “cloud-to-ground” in a cohesive and comprehensive interface.
Our community recently shared why they continue to choose the Vectra platform over Darktrace. They find that Vectra's approach of having security researchers and data scientists working together help them:
Don’t focus on “different”
Darktrace's anomaly-based system only finds what is different, not malicious. This makes it hard to prioritize resources. Go with a solution that covers an industry-leading number of MITRE ATT&CK framework network behaviors.
Skip the noise
Use Vectra to roll-up isolated alerts to create a single incident to investigate. Gain visibility based on accounts.
Surgically cut access
Darktrace requires their Antigena stack to support the majority of their controls. This forces a larger investment and significant rework of the organization’s playbooks. Vectra leverages the existing investment, integrating with current processes.
Take an appropriate level of action
Not limited to only SaaS and SIEM integrations, enable actions through orchestration, EDR and NAC solutions.
Time is of the essence
Don't spend it piecing together isolated Darktrace false positive prone alerts. Vectra customers achieved a 34X workload reduction for Tier-1 SOC analysts in detection, triage, correlation and prioritization.
Start detecting right away
Vectra requires no baselining. Don't waste valuable time training your models on a network that will inherently change in the future. Go with a solution that understands behaviors.

“We weren’t convinced by Darktrace. It had a dazzling interface but didn’t operate very efficiently.”

“I found Darktrace was a bit noisier than Vectra. Sometimes, when you deal with products like this, the noise is time and effort that you may not necessarily have. Whereas, I like the way Vectra tells you exactly the things that are happening right now in your network, then groups it based on exactly what the type is, providing you a risk score.”

“We evaluated Darktrace, in addition to Vectra, each in a PoC. We chose Vectra because the things that Vectra picked up were far more useful, and necessary from an enterprise point of view. Darktrace was a bit noisier."

“We looked online at Darktrace. Our initial engagement with Darktrace wasn't good enough to provide confidence in their platform. Vectra stood out for its simplicity and the general confidence that I had with the people whom I was engaging and having conversations with at that time.”
