Kentik is the network intelligence platform for the connected world, trusted by the leading digital enterprises globally. With Kentik, businesses eliminate the visibility and intelligence gap associated with running dynamic and complex networks, and achieve greater network performance, reliability and security. The Kentik Network Intelligence Platform ingests diverse data streams from the internet, edge, cloud, data center and hybrid infrastructures and provides real-time visualizations and AIOps-powered insights and automation.
Today’s huge, enterprise networks carry gigabits or terabits of traffic. The volume of alerts and potential network problems continues to grow, false alarms mask real problems, and network teams struggle to keep pace. Kentik’s ML-based detection engine finds problems that might be missed with traditional tools and generates insights that help network teams prioritize issues by impact and importance.
“There’s no cloud without the network, and effective network operations without proper visibility is almost impossible to achieve. That’s a challenge that Kentik is purpose-built to resolve. The ability of Kentik’s platform to detect anomalies, facilitate rapid problem identification, and automate corrective responses is key to delivering highly-available cloud services.”
Resolving network problems and mysteries is challenging—especially with today’s complex networks that span both traditional and cloud infrastructure. Kentik’s distributed architecture keeps all the data that teams need to understand what’s happening on the network and why. Powerful visualizations and a modern UI allow teams to navigate to details quickly and easily.
“The way Kentik displays and visualizes traffic and the intuitive UI make it easy for our teams to pick up anomalies and drill into investigations. Using Kentik’s built-in sharing tools, our security team can quickly direct our network team to what they’re looking at, and the network team can instantly view the same issue and data. With that kind of collaboration, the teams can more quickly triage and resolve both network and security incidents, which has led to an overall reduction in our mean-time-to-investigate (MTTI) and mean-time-to-resolve (MTTR).”
Ensuring that networks have adequate resources to handle current and expected future utilization is critical. Kentik’s capacity planning workflow automates this task, constantly collecting network data to predict future dates at which interfaces and links will reach utilization thresholds. Kentik automatically prioritizes capacity issues and generates intelligent alerts to provide lead time to order new capacity or take other corrective action.
“Given the sheer scale and complexity of our network and the amount of data it generates, network planning analyses often took days to compile. Using Kentik, our team gets valuable insights about our network within seconds.”
Kentik includes the industry’s most accurate detection of DDoS attacks and other anomalies such as large-scale data exfiltration. Multi-level thresholds escalate threats as they develop, and built-in integrations enable automated triggers for internal or third-party mitigation.
“DDoS was the primary driver for selecting Kentik, and their integration into our DDoS automation solution has been exceptional. We have also benefited from Kentik in regards to understanding our international traffic flows and security.”
As networks expand, costs for bandwidth and other network resources grow along with ever-increasing traffic volumes. However, predicting those costs has been difficult. Network managers must understand complex service provider billing models in addition to accurately measuring traffic volumes at hundreds or thousands of interfaces across the network. Kentik’s cost analytics workflow dramatically simplifies this task by combining provider billing models with real traffic measurements to produce dollars-and-cents figures that make cost prediction simple.
“Kentik has improved our costing automation for monthly expense forecasts.”
Kentik’s deep traffic history details and powerful visualizations make it easy to see how applications interact with infrastructure and deliver outstanding customer experiences.
