Kentik Customer Testimonial

As a cloud hosting provider, outgoing DDoS attacks are a constant concern. We now use data from Kentik to automatically detect suspicious outgoing traffic and shut down the user before it becomes a problem.

Case Study

Prior to using Kentik, we had very little capability to dig into historical traffic when analyzing anomalies. Shifting traffic around for capacity reasons was done mostly by guesswork. With Kentik, we now have the data we need to make informed decisions.

Case Study:

We recently saw a significant shift in border traffic during a scheduled Apple PNI maintenance window. With Kentik, we were able to monitor the draining of traffic from our Apple PNI link and move to alternate carrier services, then back again at the conclusion of the maintenance window. Kentik has been very useful in monitoring our border network and the continued effectiveness of our peering and private networking strategy.

When we are getting a DDoS attack, we need to identify the attack source or attack profile. Kentik plays a major part in identifying these.

Director, Large Gaming Company

Kentik Customer Testimonial

We previously ran an on-prem monitoring solution, but it was not scalable and was so slow. Once we deployed Kentik’s SaaS solution, we no longer needed to manage our on-prem infrastructure. Kentik is so fast, and our team’s productivity has increased significantly.

Case Study

We observed some unexpected traffic levels across an intercontinental core network link. Using Kentik, we were able to analyze the traffic at its point of ingress into the network, track it to its egress, and dimension it by destination ASN. The problem was then revealed to be a prefix leak from one of our transit customers. Without Kentik, this would have been much more time-consuming to identify.
