Broadens Networking Capabilities for Enterprises and Service Providers Challenged by Lack of Visibility Into Cloud and Hybrid Environments
SAN FRANCISCO – November 15, 2018 – Kentik®, the provider of network analytics for the cloud-native world, today announced the expansion of its platform to provide integrated agentless cloud visibility into Amazon Web Services (AWS). With Kentik’s cloud analytics suite, enterprises and service providers gain control over cloud and hybrid environments, enabling greater performance, security, cloud cost-control, and ultimately, a better experience for customers.
Across leading cloud providers, virtual private cloud (VPC) Flow Logs act as a detailed source of raw data for organizations to see the IP traffic to, from, and within their cloud-hosted applications. However, many of these organizations do not have the modern network analytics needed to derive critical networking insights from this raw data. When an issue or outage occurs, a lack of visibility into a cloud environment can stall availability and result in the loss of revenue, reputation, and customers in an instant. Kentik’s added support for AWS Flow Logs help organizations maintain visibility across environments without the deployment of agents or cloud appliances.
“While cloud providers take away the huge overhead of building, maintaining, and upgrading physical infrastructure, network management doesn’t disappear after migrating to the cloud. In fact, a majority of organizations find that understanding the network behavior of their cloud-deployed applications is a critical part of ensuring their performance and security ー and directly ties to maintaining revenue and customer experience,” said Avi Freedman, co-founder and CEO of Kentik. “Adding support for AWS Flow Logs into our platform is just one more way the Kentik team is working to provide pervasive visibility of network traffic regardless of which infrastructure an organization chooses to host its applications in.”
With the addition of AWS VPC Flow Logs to Kentik’s AWS monitoring, enterprise and service providers gain:
News of Kentik’s cloud visibility expansion for AWS comes on the heels of the company’s announcement of support for Google Cloud Platform VPC Flow Logs, and is a component of Kentik’s multi-cloud analytics suite, which includes Flow Logs, virtual appliance, and host-based traffic monitoring from the major public clouds, seamlessly combined with visibility from enterprise and service provider private clouds and data center infrastructures.
