APIs at the Core
Built with an “API first” philosophy, Kentik Detect ensures that your data is always easy to access. Our Query API lets you generate nearly a dozen types of visualizations and tables, with results returned as images, data, or URLs. You can even copy example code for any query right from the portal. There’s also an extensive set of Admin APIs that automate setup tasks like registering devices, managing users, and specifying tags and custom dimensions.
Beyond the Box
With access to Kentik Detect’s full range of dimensions, filtering, and tags, our powerful Query API lets you add network traffic intelligence to all kinds of external systems and processes. Kentik-sourced indicators can be added to a NOC dashboard to provide a unified, multi-level view that’s richer and more informative. And query results can be imported into different analytics environments for correlation with other datasets.
Kentik Detect’s API-friendly architecture sets the stage for customer-level visibility-as-a-service. Service provider portals can show detailed information about network utilization and status, including where traffic is coming from and whether there’s been a DDoS attack. Providing a valuable competitive advantage, customer-level visibility can build loyalty and enhance revenue.
