Kentik - Network Flow Analytics

Media and Entertainment

Consumers of streaming content are acutely sensitive to quality of service. Even when the weak link is the ISP or CDN, if they’re seeing your logo, you’re the one they’ll blame. To protect your reputation — and ultimately your market share — you need a clear picture of how your content is reaching your audience. Kentik measures performance on real traffic and provides powerful NPM analytics that let you identify and troubleshoot issues before they affect your viewers.

Insights & Alerting

Today, network service providers face significant challenges from every direction. Network teams are being pressed to operate more efficiently while the infrastructure complexity continues to accelerate. The volume of alerts and potential network problems continues to grow, false alarms mask real problems, and network teams struggle to keep pace. Kentik’s ML-based detection engine finds problems that might be missed with traditional tools and generates insights that help network teams prioritize issues by impact and importance.

Benefits:

  • Simplify monitoring with built-in, zero-configuration detection
  • Discover emerging network events before they affect customer experience
  • Triage and prioritize events to reduce resolution times (MTTR)

Network Troubleshooting

Resolving network problems and mysteries is challenging—especially with today’s complex networks that span both traditional and cloud infrastructure. Kentik’s distributed architecture keeps all the data that teams need to understand what’s happening on the network and why. Powerful visualizations and a modern UI allow teams to navigate to details quickly and easily.

Benefits:

  • Determine affected applications, services and users
  • Find root causes using guided troubleshooting steps
  • Minimize MTTR and business impact of network problems

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

Network Cost Analytics

As networks expand, costs for bandwidth and other network resources grow along with ever-increasing traffic volumes. However, predicting those costs has been difficult. Network managers must understand complex service provider billing models in addition to accurately measuring traffic volumes at hundreds or thousands of interfaces across the network. Kentik’s cost analytics workflow dramatically simplifies this task by combining provider billing models with real traffic measurements to produce dollars-and-cents figures that make cost prediction simple.

Benefits:

  • Understand the drivers of overall network spend
  • True up provider invoices and discover billing errors
  • Eliminate billing surprises with automatic cost forecasts

WAN/SD-WAN

Gain deep insight into actual WAN / SD-WAN traffic delivery to optimize end-to-end performance, defend against DDoS attacks, and drive network automation. Learn more.

Benefits:

  • Improve user experience
  • Ensure success of new SD-WAN implementations

Hybrid Cloud

Gain an immediate and single, unified view to understand topology state, traffic flows, network performance, and device health status within and between multi-cloud, on-prem, and internet infrastructures.

Benefits:

  • Quickly find and resolve problems by viewing network performance and utilization data from the data center to clouds, other sites/data centers and internet sites
  • React quickly to network conditions and discover which devices are experiencing CPU, memory, interface or traffic anomalies
  • Easily plan and troubleshoot traffic patterns in data center traffic
