API World (Booth 305) – September 29, 2015 – Akana, a leading provider of API Management, API security and Cloud Integration solutions, announced today that its API Gateway has won the Integrate 2015 Award for Top Innovator in API Management.  The award recognizes Akana’s leadership in the API management category.  Akana won the award through an online vote conducted by the Integrate 2015 Conference, which takes place together with API World.

“It’s a great honor to be acknowledged by industry peers as the leading innovator for our API Gateway in this critical space,” said Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President of Akana.  “As API management becomes an important lever of business strategy, we are excited to be at the forefront of the technology.”

Akana’s API Gateway solution streamlines the development, deployment, security, management and operation of APIs.  It enables enterprises to standardize and automate the delivery of APIs and services with high security, performance and availability. The Gateway provides rich service and API integration capabilities across multiple instances in multiple, geographically diverse datacenters.  It provides central definition and management of security, routing, orchestration, mediation, auditing, threat protection and other operational policies. The Gateway enhances security and regulatory compliance through authentication, authorization and audit capabilities.  It can be deployed on-premises, in the cloud or in a hybrid model.
