As the enterprise evolves operations across continents, saying operations tend to get complex is an understatement. And with the WFH world, cloud migrations and combination of on or off premises components, keeping this symphony in tune is no small feat. One of the secrets is in depth network visibility.




Silver Peak (News - Alert) and Kenitik announced a partnership that brings together Kentik’s end-to-end network activity views with the Silver Peak SD-WAN overlay, underlay and application traffic details introducing more intelligent application and network performance.

Fraser Street, vice president of technical alliances at Silver Peak explained, "Silver Peak is committed to exposing the APIs and interfaces necessary to enable partners like Kentik (News - Alert) to establish native integration with EdgeConnect, enabling joint customers to maximize both network performance and value when deploying our integrated solution."

Now integrated support for the Unity EdgeConnect SD-WAN Edge platform, enterprises eliminate network blindspots and optimize operations by newfound insight into troubleshooting, capacity planning, policy compliance management, and network cost through intelligent application traffic auditing.

"As more enterprises adopt SD-WAN to support their global workforces, new network visibility gaps are emerging. This is a challenge we're excited to address by partnering with Silver Peak," said Nick Stinemates, vice president of business development at Kentik. "Our new integration offers advanced SD-WAN visibility and highlights another way that Kentik is helping organizations across the world to gain a comprehensive view of their infrastructure for greater network and business performance."

G.I. Joe used to say, “Knowing is half the battle.” While there’s no guarantee with any digital transformation initiative, maintaining visibility allows for a new level of understanding and an enhanced user – and IT – experience.
