  • The New NetFlow: A 20-Year-Old Secret for Better Network Management Recorded: Sep 23 2019 59 mins
    Jim Meehan, Head of Product Markting, Kentik
    It’s been more than 20 years since Cisco first introduced NetFlow as a scalable way to track network activity without collecting raw packets.

    To this day, network operators who use NetFlow and other types of flow data for network management still report the benefits, which include a lightweight monitoring footprint, faster troubleshooting, more effective planning, and automated security.

    However, when any technology survives for two decades, it raises the question: Is NetFlow outdated? Are there other data sources and technologies that are newer, faster, and more detailed for achieving network visibility?

    In this web seminar replay (originally broadcast September 17, 2019) Jim Meehan, head of Product Marketing at Kentik, discusses:

    • What’s new with NetFlow?
    • Why is NetFlow more useful than ever before?
    • What are the new native fields in NetFlow that extend visibility to/from firewalls, load balancers, and MPLS?
    • And how can you achieve enrichment by adding data that’s not within flow records?

    Additionally, Meehan advises on why NetFlow is better than ever and remains an invaluable source of truth for network operators seeking immediate answers to network questions.

  • Service Providers: Find the Hidden Profit in Your Network Recorded: Jun 27 2019 30 mins
    Jim Meeham, Product Director at Kentik
    CSPs can surpass revenue and cost targets with analytics that combine network data and business data to deliver insights that can be put to immediate use!

    Network traffic data has the potential to drive better business outcomes for communication service providers (CSPs). However, for many providers, measuring how IP traffic is delivered across large networks remains a slow, entirely manual process, and it’s difficult to put the data to work.

    Learn how to leverage [and profit] from your network traffic data. Kentik’s Product Marketing Director, Jim Meehan demonstrates how CSPs can surpass revenue and cost targets with real-time analytics that combine network data and business data to deliver insights that can be put to immediate use.

    The session covers key network data opportunities for CSPs:

    - Understand each customer’s end-to-end contribution to network load

    - Create differentiated pricing based on where traffic primarily flows (domestic or international)

    -Uncover new sales and up sell opportunities within network data

    - Track third party OTT services and respond to competitive threats

    - Use per-subscriber utilization details to drive better customer service outcomes

  • Five Cloud Deployment Mistakes that Will Cost You Recorded: Feb 13 2019 34 mins
    Jim Meehan, Director of Product Marketing
    With physical network infrastructure moving to the cloud, it’s easy to think that networks are instantly faster, more reliable, limitless, and cheap. However, the reality is that cloud technology can be complex, especially when it comes to networking. Combined with the rapid pace of deployment and lack of visibility into how cloud resources are being utilized, it’s easy to make costly mistakes.

    Please Join Jim Meehan, Kentik Product Marketing Director, to discuss five network-related cloud deployment mistakes that you might not be aware of, but can negate the cloud benefits that you’re hoping to achieve.
    Mistake #1 - Duplicate services and unknown dependencies
    Mistake #2 - Traffic or request hair-pinning
    Mistake #3 - Unnecessary inter-region traffic
    Mistake #4 - Missing compression
    Mistake #5 - Internet traffic delivery

    In this webinar, we will also advise how to avoid these top cloud deployment mistakes with pervasive visibility.

  • 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.
