Kentik - Network Flow Analytics

Digital Enterprises

In a digital enterprise, applications drive traffic and the network delivers it. Together, they create the experience that defines the brand. Whether you’re in e-commerce, streaming, the sharing economy, or ad tech, the challenge is to provide flawless user interaction, protect against threats, and innovate at speed. To do that you need real-time network traffic intelligence at Web scale. Kentik is the only data analytics platform that’s purpose-built to meet that need.
  • “Kentik has given us the insight and visibility that we have not been able to achieve through other network performance monitoring products or open source tools. We can see things we simply couldn’t see before.”
    Sam Eaton, Director of Engineering Operations
  • “We needed an holistic view of our network that was affordable, scalable, highly performant, and had a single location to gather all of the network flow analytics we wanted.”
    James Kelty, Senior Director of Network Operations and Engineering
  • “Kentik’s solution has given us a breakthrough level of visibility that puts us in far better control of the complex network and Internet traffic delivery factors that impact our service delivery.”
    Scott Martin, VP Technical Operations, AppNexus
  • “Whenever we have any outage or escalation, Kentik is really helpful in analyzing the issue, which ultimately helps to resolve it.”

Solutions for Digital Enterprises

Peering & Interconnection

Identify remote networks to target for direct interconnection and understand the potential impacts on new and existing connectivity—to help identify peering opportunities, optimize routing, and negotiate more favorable contracts.

Benefits:

  • Find opportunities to optimize costs or improve performance via new connectivity
  • Evaluate potential peering partners and build data-driven business cases for interconnection
  • Measure traffic ratios and enforce peering agreements

Capacity Planning

Ensuring that networks have adequate resources to handle current and expected future utilization is critical. Kentik’s capacity planning workflow automates this task, constantly collecting network data to predict future dates at which interfaces and links will reach utilization thresholds. Kentik automatically prioritizes capacity issues and generates intelligent alerts to provide lead time to order new capacity or take other corrective action.

Benefits:

  • Automate data gathering and correlation to prioritize the most critical capacity issues
  • Eliminate complex spreadsheets and manual planning processes
  • Prevent congestion surprises that impact applications or users

DDoS Defense

Kentik includes the industry’s most accurate detection of DDoS attacks and other anomalies such as large-scale data exfiltration. Multi-level thresholds escalate threats as they develop, and built-in integrations enable automated triggers for internal or third-party mitigation.

Benefits:

  • Detect and defend up to 50% more attacks* (TechValidate 2017 Customer Survey)
  • Eliminate false positives/negatives and decrease response time with automatic ML-based traffic profiling
  • Visualize attack characteristics and network impact
  • Trigger automatic mitigation actions including RTBH, Flowspec, and external mitigation hardware or services

Hybrid/Multi-Cloud

Get a single-pane view of traffic flow across your entire app stack, regardless of whether components are deployed in one or more private, public, or hybrid clouds, or are provided across the Internet by CDNs or as API-accessible services. Zoom in for high-resolution details of individual flows, and out for holistic views of overall service health and user experience.

Benefits:

  • Understand service dependencies between new and old infrastructure
  • Plan and benchmark application migration projects
  • Plan capacity investment by seeing volume trends between on- and off-net service locations
