France-IX, an Internet Peering Service Provider in France, and Kentik announced a partnership that offers France-IX peering members real-time intelligence solutions in an offering for IXP services.

As the latest France-IX Marketplace seller, Kentik marks the beginning of the partnership with an exclusive offer for any France-IX member in Paris: a free-of-charge single license for Kentik Detect, its flagship big data platform that converts network data – including NetFlow, sFlow, IPFIX and BGP – into business intelligence. Leveraging Kentik Detect, France-IX members have access to the most granular, real-time traffic analysis, DDoS and anomaly detection, and intuitive peering analytics.

"Digital businesses across the globe today are sitting on a vast amount of untapped insights buried within their network traffic data that traditional performance monitoring tools cannot uncover," said Avi Freedman, co-founder and CEO of Kentik. "Our customers are getting an unprecedented level for visibility for network operations, in combination with business intelligence that advances their security posture and increases revenue. With this new partnership with France-IX, their members will receive complimentary access to tactical and strategic traffic intelligence through their exchange infrastructure, and Kentik will grow its reach in France and Western Europe."

Through the new partnership, France-IX members can explore Kentik's NetFlow ad-hoc traffic analysis service, with the flexibility to decide the number of routers they wish to have supervised by Kentik. With a single VLAN connection through the France-IX platform in Paris, members can start benefiting from Kentik's innovative service in just one business day.

"With this unique partnership, France-IX adds Software-as-a-Service to the six other services already available through its Marketplace. Kentik's disruptive services illustrate perfectly what the France-IX Marketplace is all about: the perfect toolkit for agile network managers looking for the best value for money in record times," explained Delphine Masciopinto, Chief Commercial Officer at France-IX. "We will keep adding further services, such as Kentik's, to provide the best innovations to our members."

Kentik Detect stores raw flow records, BGP and other data for 90 days and offers powerful analysis on billions of data points in seconds, establishing dashboards, data patterns and baselines to help distinguish what is normal or not. Kentik's services are available in all France-IX points of presence in Paris: Interxion PAR1, PAR2 and PAR5, Iliad DC2 and DC3, Telehouse 2 and 3, and Equinix Telecity PA6 and PA7.
