The Akana Story

APIs are driving your digital business, whether you know it or not. This opens up your enterprise, applications, and systems in new ways – introducing new risks and opportunities.

The world’s leading organizations trust Akana to secure, design, and manage their APIs to reach their full digital potential while minimizing risk.

Akana was founded by Eric Pulier in 2001 under the name Digital Evolution. In 2005, the company changed its name to SOA Software, after which a number of software vendors were acquired. Most notably were Blue Titan, a web services networking company, in May 2006 and LogicLibrary, an SOA Repository and Governance vendor, in May 2008.

In March 2015, the company changed its name to Akana. In 2016, Akana was acquired by Rogue Wave Software, a leader in cross-platform software development tools and high-performance computing applications, strengthening the brand’s presence in API management tools.

In 2019, Rogue Wave and Akana became a part of Perforce, a global leader in software development lifecycle, version control, and code analysis software. The addition of the Rogue Wave family of products, and Akana in particular, further expanded Perforce solutions to accelerate development and improve security for its customers.

Together with Perforce, we believe that APIs continue to be a key driver for business innovation, and bring you the tools to support your strategic initiatives.
