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.
  • “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
  • “The Kentik team has consistently delivered clear answers and novel solutions to the network problems I have.”
    Adam Howsley, IT Manager
  • “Kentik allows us to better understand DDoS attacks and investigate security events.”
    Miguel Benjumea Ortiz, Network Administrator
  • “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
  • “When you’re handling several hundred gigabits of network traffic each second, effective DDoS detection and traffic engineering insights are critical. At Dailymotion we’ve been looking to replace our open source tools with a solution that can handle our volume and is fast, flexible, scalable, and easy to use. After testing several market-leading systems we chose Kentik Detect, which provides us with the metrics and insights we need to understand everything about our traffic.”

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

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

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

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/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
