  • How Network Visibility Enhances Security of Multi-Tenant Environments Recorded: Jun 5 2018 60 mins
    Adrian Montebello of phoenixNAP and Jim Meehan of Kentik
    Modern enterprise networks are becoming more dynamic and complex, which poses significant challenges for today’s IT leaders. As more workloads move to the cloud and access networks become more open, ensuring security and stability becomes a more demanding task. The attack surface expands, creating more gaps for hackers to exploit potential vulnerabilities.

    In this webinar, Adrian Montebello, network operation manager of phoenixNAP (data center and IT service provider), and Jim Meehan, head of product marketing at Kentik (network traffic intelligence company), will discuss why maintaining network health is more important than ever for today’s organizations, with digital operations now the backbone of successful business operations.

    The pair will also provide real-world examples how to maintain network visibility to mitigate risk and improve overall data security.
  • Advanced Analytics: Modernizing Enterprise Networks Recorded: Mar 21 2018 36 mins
    Jim Meehan, Head of Product Marketing, Kentik
    Enterprise networks are changing fast. Traffic volumes are growing relentlessly, applications are increasingly dynamic and distributed, and some of them have moved outside of IT’s direct control. On top of these challenges, every category of business process is moving to digital — the network is now both your supply chain and your delivery vehicle. IT and network teams are feeling more squeezed than ever as their traditional tools fall further behind these modern requirements.

    Is your enterprise network facing one or more of these challenges?

    Join Kentik’s Jim Meehan to learn how network traffic intelligence provides:

    --Pervasive visibility within the data center, across the WAN, and into public cloud
    --Proactive alerting and anomaly detection for both NetOps and SecOps
    --Single-pane-of-glass visibility across all applications regardless of where they run
    --And much more for modernizing your enterprise network
  • Detecting Hidden Spambots...and Other Network Security Tales from Flow Data Recorded: Dec 13 2017 53 mins
    Jim Meehan of Kentik
    A site reliability team investigates why they were blacklisted from a Google API. Misconfig? DDoS? Turns out it was an accident caused by the team's engineering interns, who wrote a bad script. Another team quickly located and eradicated spambots lurking in their infrastructure cloud -- after months of the bots evading basic detection methods. How did these teams make these discoveries? Flow data.

    Flow data is now often paired with many other data sets, including BGP, geolocation, and business metadata, for network and security intelligence. The availability of open source and commercial big data technology and scale-out computing clusters makes it possible to realize the value that flow data has always promised, but never delivered in the past -- with use cases across sophisticated, accurate, and useful anomaly detection and alerting, as well as ad-hoc, exploratory analyses. In this webinar, Kentik's Jim Meehan, head of product marketing, will discuss real-world examples of network performance, anomaly detection, and forensic mysteries that were quickly solved via flow data. He will also cover current best practices for leveraging flow data.
