I believe that pricing is fair for what the platform offers. 


We replaced Vectra Cognito Detect with DarkTrace although DarkTrace was more expensive than Vectra. 


DarkTrace offered better network visibility and made detections in the environment during the POV that Vectra missed. 


Vectra did have an additional platform (Vectra Cognito Recall) that could be purchased to increase network visibility but the cost of Vectra Detect and Recall actually came in about 40K more than DarkTrace's pricing.

This company offers now antigena email for O365, securitizing operations for administrators and VIP. This solution permits us to control where and when the credentials of these important people are used throughout the world, Bahamas beaches, or regular head office. This could give an indication of who uses the account.


This product is still more relevant with a Team approach of authorizing 5 laptops, 5 smartphones, and 5 tablets.


The price for a 3 years subscription is affordable, about 10000 euros per year for 100 users, that means 100 euros per user to compare with equivalent Microsoft Products 


E5 Microsoft 365 and Microsoft CASB.

It was $3,600 a month or $2,000 plus or so. I am not sure. Its licensing is pretty simple.

It's priced based on the number of IP addresses for the enterprise immune system.

The pricing is based on utilization i.e. the number of IP addresses you use. The bigger a network you have the more you will pay. 


Darktrace needs to revisit the pricing in order to differentiate pricing for small businesses and bigger companies. The pricing is expected to decrease though, with the assumption that more companies will join the Darktrace bandwagon.

The price of the solution is not cheap. It is not a one-time purchase, there is a subscription that needs to be paid every one to five years depending on your choice. It is expensive but you can reduce the price by only using the services that you want. There is some flexibility, for example, if you only want to have email inspections, network inspections, endpoint inspections, or brief analytics of the reports and controls over your infrastructure, can reduce the prices accordingly. Not choosing all the features can reduce the price. When comparing this solution to competitors in the market it is expensive. However, you are paying for a valuable solution with plenty of features. Their artificial and cyber intelligence is working extremely well. I am a consultant and work with a variety of solutions by myself, attend training, and understand people who are working with these solutions. I need to know the advantage, disadvantages, weaknesses, and what makes the solution better than the others. Darktrace proves at some point that the value of money you are paying for the solution is reasonable for the advanced technology you are receiving as it covers many solutions that can cost much much more than darktrace where as i you bought Darktrace you reducing all the complexity to one simple solution.

We typically do yearly or three-year licensing, however, I can't speak to the exact costs or arrangements. It's not too expensive. The price is good for what it offers.

We are still currently in the test period. Within the year, we will have to invest in the cost of licensing. We have not done that yet. The solution itself is quite expensive.

It could be cheaper. When it comes to large installations, it can be expensive, but for small accounts it's fine.

The pricing is very flexible for Darktrace. Sometimes, a customer does not have the appropriate budget, but Darktrace can handle that. They offer monthly payments, so the customer can acquire the solution very easily.

Our customers feel that the price of Darktrace is quite high compared to other solutions. However, I feel that they are one of the top solutions in this space and they want to be paid for that.

I am not so satisfied with the pricing model for Darktrace. The price is a little bit high compared to other solutions. The pricing model should be more flexible.

If you consider the features and the cost of market leaders, we are satisfied with the pricing.

For out of the box it is licensed per device or node that it connects to. I think for services there were some additional licensing fees.

We are doing a monthly cost-basis. It's about 500,000 NKR because we are the first to implement it in Sri Lanka. We worked out direct pricing from Darktrace UK. After that, we selected a vendor in Sri Lanka. But the thing is, we are the first implementation here. I think they are actually undercharging and giving us the solution first because they want a reference from us since we are a bank in Sri Lanka. That's why they are doing it like that. There are no additional costs besides the license, except the 15% rate to the Sri Lanka government.

I think that the price is quite fair and very good for this type of product and the features that the product provides.
