In an interconnected world, the internet is the key glue that binds your company, users, applications, and partners. Whether you are providing or consuming internet access or transit, you need direct visibility into exactly how much and what types of traffic are traversing the network edge, and who is driving the activity. This understanding is essential for troubleshooting problems, optimizing capacity and performance, and protecting assets and services from misuse and attack.
Gain deep, direct insights into east-west traffic and changes to applications or infrastructure. Leverage real-time, granular visibility to quickly investigate issues, drill down to root causes, and inform your response. Integrate with data center and microservices integration to gain visibility into the traffic dynamics of your traditional and cloud-native network deployments.
Get a single-pane view of traffic flow across your entire app stack, regardless of whether components are deployed in one or more private, public, or hybrid clouds, or are provided across the Internet by CDNs or as API-accessible services. Zoom in for high-resolution details of individual flows, and out for holistic views of overall service health and user experience.
Gain deep insight into actual WAN / SD-WAN traffic delivery to optimize end-to-end performance, defend against DDoS attacks, and drive network automation.
“Kentik’s solution has given us a breakthrough level of visibility that puts us in far better control of the complex network and Internet traffic delivery factors that impact our service delivery.”
Containers are changing the way applications are designed, deployed, and operated. Orchestration like Kubernetes abstracts away the underlying network and infrastructure types—yet application operation still depends on reliable infrastructure.
Kentik integrates with traffic sources from the lower level (Flow Logs and physical and logical flow sources from data centers), service mappings from Kubernetes and orchestrators, and service meshes like Istio, to provide a complete real-time map of traffic dynamics within and between your applications and services.
Kentik combines AWS VPC Flow Logs with AWS tags, and Amazon EKS Kubernetes service mappings, to provide visibility into your AWS infrastructure.
See traffic to, from, and in between your VPCs, corporate networks, and the internet. Get notified of performance, cost, and security issues, and drill in via UI or API to debug and resolve.
Kentik also integrates with virtual cloud routers, firewalls, load balancers, and host agents to provide real-time flow data and can be easily used in addition to or instead of Flow Log-based visibility.
Kentik collects Microsoft Azure Network Security Group (NSG) Flow Logs to provide real-time visibility and traffic analytics into your Azure infrastructure.
NSG Flow Logs allow Azure users to view detailed information about IP traffic associated with an NSG, including byte and packet counts and session state on a per-flow basis, with “allowed” and “denied” traffic patterns, to equip the organization with solid awareness of security and network activity.
Kentik also integrates with virtual cloud routers, firewalls, load balancers, and host agents in Azure, providing a comprehensive real-time traffic view beyond flow log-based visibility.
Stop flying blind. Streamed to Kentik’s analytics-as-a-service platform in real-time every 5 seconds, Google VPC Flow Logs provide powerful insights into all network activity to, from, and between VMs within GCP projects without having to instrument VMs or services individually. Add in GKE Kubernetes service and pod data, or Istio as a data source, to see a full view of the dynamics of your container mesh.
Integrating data from GCP-deployed virtual cloud routers, firewalls, load balancers, and host agents can provide even greater visibility.
Kentik’s Universal Data Records architecture is the key to bringing together a broad and ever-growing range of data sources and data types that aren’t present in traditional network flow data. From firewalls, to containers and other network components, wherever they might reside.
Kentik UDRs give visibility into container technologies such as Kubernetes and Istio as well as firewalls including Cisco ASA and others. Firewalls in particular can carry deep insights into network traffic—based on their ability to perform deep packet inspection and authentication, and add attributes (such as user names and application types) to flow data—adding both security and application context to network activity.
