Kontiki was founded in November 2000. In March, 2006, the company was acquired by VeriSign (now Symantec). Kontiki has always been focused on the enterprise business, but during the VeriSign years, they also had a consumer-focused division, which was responsible for technology integration with products such as the BBC iPlayer.
In May 2008, VeriSign, as part of a divestiture, sold Kontiki to MK Capital. Since breaking away from VeriSign, the company focused on their enterprise business.
Kontiki raised $10.7 million in funding in 2010. The round was led by MK Capital and joined by New World Ventures and Cross Creek Capital, an affiliate of Wasatch Advisors.
Kontiki brought on a new president and CEO, Dan Vetras, in May 2011. Vetras previously was CEO of Visible Technologies.
