The New NetFlow: A 20-Year-Old Secret for Better Network Management

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 However, when any technology survives for two decades, it raises the question: Is NetFlow outdated?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 webinar, Kentik’s Jim Meehan, head of product marketing, will advise on why NetFlow is better than ever and remains an invaluable source of truth for network operators looking to get immediate answers to network questions. Meehan will answer: 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? Webinar Speaker: Jim Meehan is a long-time network enthusiast, founding one of Chicago's first dial-up ISPs in the early 1990s. His career includes stints in network operations and vendor pre-sales engineering, including 10+ years at Arbor Networks. Currently he leads the Product Marketing team at Kentik.
