Company’s Powerful SaaS Analytics Standout as Innovative Network Visibility Solution

SAN FRANCISCO – July 23, 2018 – Kentik®, the leader in network analytics, today announced that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Kentik to its 2018 Emerging Vendors List in the Networking category. CRN’s list recognizes recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers who are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations.

“Today’s digital organizations are building networks that are increasingly complex and internet-dependent. Yet, they still can’t answer basic questions about their networks’ performance, security, and user experience,” said Jim Frey, Vice President of Channel at Kentik. “We created Kentik to address the network visibility challenge. Our record year-over-year growth, expanding channel program, and industry accolades, including making CRN’s list, reflect our commitment to delivering the modern approach that modern networks require.”

Kentik was recognized on CRN’s 2018 Emerging Vendors List for Kentik Detect®, its powerful network analytics SaaS platform. Built on a patented big data engine, Kentik Detect uses real-time flow analysis, uniquely enriched with business context and internet profiles to help large enterprises and service providers protect their revenue and reputation. With Kentik, organizations can proactively identify and quickly analyze performance issues, traffic anomalies and attacks, and drive automated resolution. At the same time, they have the depth and richness of network activity insights to plan and optimize their networks for maximum cost and performance efficiency. Kentik goes even further, adding business and service context for translating network intelligence into business and service intelligence.

“The technology suppliers on CRN’s 2018 Emerging Vendors list are creating a bright future for the IT channel, aggressively developing products to meet complex IT market demands, while positively impacting the bottom line of solution providers,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The array of leading-edge products delivered by these organizations will have a lasting impact on the channel for years to come.”
