Fast, rich traffic intelligence
Kentik Detect® is the only big data platform architected from the ground up for real-time network traffic intelligence. Whether you’re running a service provider, operating a Web enterprise, or managing a digital line of business, the network is mission-critical. Kentik Detect makes it fast and easy to understand what’s happening, and to operate and defend your network based on detailed, up-to-the-second information.
Big Data, fast access
Kentik Detect runs on a lightning-fast big data platform that scales seamlessly to any volume of network traffic. We ingest your network metadata into a unified time-series datastore, in the cloud or on-premises, that’s distributed, multi-tenant, and secure. We retain unsummarized data — flow records (NetFlow, sFlow, IPFIX, etc.), GeoIP, BGP, SNMP, and performance metrics — from months in the past. And we deliver answers in seconds to large-scale ad hoc queries that can show you the big picture or drill down on key details.

Powerful, open tools
With Kentik Detect, you get an intuitive suite of dashboards and views that enable real-time monitoring, ad hoc multi-dimensional traffic analysis, user-defined alerting, and capacity and peering analytics. You also get open access to your data via any PostgreSQL client, and painless integration using industry-standard REST APIs. In short, Kentik Detect provides everything you need for fast, rich network intelligence.
