Kentik Launches Global Channel Program to Meet Growing Demand for Network Traffic Intelligence
20 Partners Added as Digital Transformation, IoT & Cloud Adoption Drive Worldwide Need for Kentik’s Platform
SAN FRANCISCO – August 24, 2017 – Kentik, the leader in network traffic intelligence, today announced the launch of a formal global channel program to meet increasing demand for network analytics that inform real-time business and technical operations decisions. The news comes on the heels of Kentik’s announcement of a reseller partnership with Net One Systems, the leading cloud infrastructure integrator in Japan. With 20 channel partners now signed on worldwide, Kentik’s channel program accelerates its global market growth and enables partners to benefit from the company’s momentum.
“Digital transformation, IoT, and cloud adoption are driving ceaseless growth in network traffic, both internally and across the internet. The potential business and operational intelligence from that traffic is immensely valuable, but legacy tools are overwhelmed by the volume and essentially blind to traffic beyond the border,” said Jim Frey, vice president of strategic alliances at Kentik. “Kentik’s network traffic intelligence platform was built for modern networks using the latest technologies, including big data, SaaS, and streaming analytics. No other platform can match Kentik Detect’s capabilities, which is why we’re launching our channel program on a global scale, to better address worldwide demand for our solutions.”
Kentik’s channel program partnerships are tier-based with two channel categories: Kentik Advocate Partners and Kentik Reseller Partners. Advocate Partners include independent sales agents and small consulting firms looking to introduce cutting-edge solutions to their client base. Reseller Partners include firms aiming to directly grow their topline with advanced network analytics technologies. All program partners will benefit from Kentik’s sales and marketing initiatives and customer success training and support.
