MINNEAPOLIS, June 23, 2022 – Akana by Perforce, a leading API management provider to large enterprise teams, now offers BlazeMeter to customers, previously a solution with Broadcom Layer7. This adds continuous API testing, synthetic monitoring, and enhanced API mock services to the already robust Akana suite. BlazeMeter was recently recognized as a market leader by IDC, bringing added value, capabilities, and scale to Akana’s robust full lifecycle API management suite. “Akana now offers the most comprehensive API testing and monitoring capabilities out there” said Samir Ullal, Product Manager at Akana. “With BlazeMeter, Akana takes full lifecycle API management to another level by incorporating different aspects of testing into the various lifecycle stages."

BlazeMeter API Testing Improves Akana’s API Security, Governance and Oversight Capabilities

With the addition of BlazeMeter to the Perforce portfolio, Akana solidifies governance, oversight, and API security capabilities. In a world where APIs are the leading security threat vector, an organization’s API testing and monitoring capabilities are how they keep customer and company data secure. BlazeMeter by Perforce offers an integrated approach to API testing which easily ties into an organization’s CI/CD pipelines. This allows organizations to accomplish performance API testing and operational API testing alongside other important development pipelines. Additionally, BlazeMeter integrates with open-source and third-party tools such as Jenkins, PagerDuty, and Slack. This means team members can get instant notifications when API issues arise and put a stop to API threats or performance issues before they affect customers. 

The Akana BlazeMeter upgrade is a cloud-based offering. For more information on how to get started with BlazeMeter, contact your Akana representative.
