Why These Differences Matter

Analytics At Scale, Immediately

Reveal(x) analyzes data at a sustained 100Gbps per appliance, automatically discovering and classifying all endpoints and transactions in real time so you'll start receiving useful insights as soon as you plug in. Darktrace caps out at 6Gbps per appliance and requires human analysts to build out reports, so the first 3-4 weeks of your deployment delivers zero value.

Limited scalability for Darktrace means that even if you pay for six times more hardware and associated management costs, Darktrace will still provide less timely, less thorough information than you'd get from one Reveal(x) appliance.
