Kentik Feature Reviews

13 reviewers had the following to say about Kentik's features:

Robert Placencia

Best net flow analytics tool on the market

2019-01-18

I've been using Kentik for just over a year now and have been more than impressed. I've since scrapped my old Solarwinds deployment and don't intend on looking back. The support is very responsive and they definitely go out of their way to ensure you have what you need.

Pros

Ease of use and the ability to visualize data in ways that make the most sense

Cons

Honestly my only complaint is the fact that I haven't been able to sell my management on this tool for other networks that I manage

Easy to use powerful product

2019-01-27

We are also using the monitoring and mitigation components to detect and signal mitigation when a ddos occurs on our network.

Pros

., classifying interfaces, adding devices and defining alerts is a breeze.

Cons

Overall, there are really no major cons that we have come across as support has always been very helpful when we are looking for a new feature or a way to do something.

Steve DeJong

very helpful tools for global networks

2019-01-25

Internal adoption by the operations groups took a very long time but now they can't function without the dashboards, slack notifications or NOC hooks

Pros

Webhooks, alarms and notifications provide valuable insights into how our network is being used

Cons

Kentik provides a very comprehensive set of tools and visualization capabilities.

Pros & Cons of using Kentik

2019-01-20

Overall I have good experience with Kentik as data analysis software, it has help to mitigate top talkers in network and make necessary optimization in network accordingly.

Pros

It is good software which helps to track the top talking AS/IP Address in an Network.

Cons

It does not help to set threshold for traffic sourced/destined with Network address/port and detect DOS/DDOS attacks and generate alerts accordingly so network team can mitigate the same.

Invaluable Insight into network traffic

2019-01-18

Pros

Just Works! Easy to implement.

Cons

I don't like sending our netflows to a third party, and once when we had a severe DDoS attack, we could not use Kentik since our data did not get to them.

Kentik

2019-01-18

Pros

The software itself is very versatile and that is a great tick in the pros column. What I like most though is dealing with the Kentik people.

Cons

It's pretty easy to get past, especially with help from Kentik, but there's a lot that can be done and gleaned from it and it's very intimidating initially.

Kentik Network Monitoring

2019-08-16

Pros

Normal traffic, abnormal... it was a lovely tool to show customers what they were doing.

Cons

Versatility comes with a price - Kentik was very complicated to use. If you didn't use it very frequently, you generally forgot how.

Best Flow Analysis out there

2019-01-18

Kentik is a great product, their support is excellent, their product is as well.

Pros

Kentik is a great product that is a step above the rest. Its easy to use, it quick to setup, its very powerful and can be leveraged for many uses.

Cons

That its in the cloud and not onsite. If there was a hybrid option that would be useful.
