What Analysts Say About Akana vs. Layer 7

In their most recent API Management Solutions report, Forrester Wave ranked Akana (listed as "Rogue Wave Software") in the “Leaders” category overall, and the only vendor to receive a perfect score of 5.0 (out of 5.0) for user portal and security.

Forrester states, "Akana has particularly strong API security and policy capabilities and good breadth across most all of our evaluation criteria. Its API user portal is among the most configurable and extensible."

Meanwhile, Forrester deemed Broadcom’s offering to be a tier below the “Leaders”, placing it among the “Strong Performers." The report gave mostly 3.0 scores to Layer 7 across the 26 criteria, and a strikingly low score of 1.8 for “User Engagement.”

Similarly, in the latest 2019 Magic Quadrant from Gartner, Broadcom was dropped from a “Leader” to a “Niche Player." Gartner cautions customers about a notable change to the vendor’s service and support.
