Darktrace vs SS8 Buzzword Bingo
Looking for a Darktrace Alternative, and want to have a little fun?
Play Darktrace vs SS8 Buzzword Bingo and start crossing-off the jargon that separates the SS8 approach from Darktrace.
If you’re in the market for a network traffic analysis solution (NTA), you may have already had some exposure to our competitor Darktrace via a sales person, or maybe you watched a demo, or maybe you’re even an existing customer.
From the first conversation, you’ve likely been exposed to a series of terms like “Machine Learning,” “Immune System,” “Artificial Intelligence,” and “self-learning,” which are thrown around as much as “Likes” on social media. (BTW…this is not exclusive to the NTA category.) These buzzword terms should not be taken lightly, as they may influence your journey in selecting an NTA vendor.
While it’s important to understand the differences between an offering like Darktrace and SS8 for threat detection, and while you may prefer one approach over the other, we can only hope you become better informed about the criteria of network traffic analysis, the representative vendors, and allow you to have some fun in the process. After all, why can’t cyber security be fun?
Next time you have a conversation with a Darktrace or SS8 representative, remember to bring your Bingo card!
