Partnership Overview

The Kentik Platform inspects network traffic and detects DDoS attacks in real-time. Notification of the attack is sent to operations or security staff via one or more configured methods: email, JSON, OpsGenie, PagerDuty, Slack, ServiceNow, or Syslog.

Integrated with Cloudflare Magic Transit, Kentik signals Cloudflare to automatically shift traffic destined for the target IP into their cloud mitigation data centers. Cloudflare filters the malicious traffic and delivers only the legitimate traffic back to the end-user. Mitigation actions can be fully automated, or the user can choose to require an acknowledgment from security or operations staff before the mitigation is activated.
