Cloud-based Network traffic intelligence startup, Kentik announced the launch of a formal global channel program to meet increasing demand for network analytics that inform real-time business and technical operations decisions.
Headquartered in San Francisco, Kentik was founded by network and big data technologists and executives from companies such as Akamai, CloudFlare, YouTube, and Netflix. It offers a purpose-built big data engine that turns huge volumes of network data into actionable insights. The company secured $23 million in Series B funding last year, bringing its total funding to $38.2 milion.
Kentik's channel program partnerships are tier-based with two channel categories: Kentik Advocate Partners and Kentik Reseller Partners. Advocate Partners include independent sales agents and small consulting firms looking to introduce cutting-edge solutions to their client base. Reseller Partners include firms aiming to directly grow their topline with advanced network analytics technologies.
All program partners will benefit from Kentik's sales and marketing initiatives and customer success training and support, said the company.
