Kayako was established in 2001 by Varun Shoor, who formed the company and its first office in Jalandhar, Punjab after dropping out of college. Shoor learned to program when he was 13 years old, and started work on Kayako at the age of 17.
To date, Kayako has not received any funding from external investors and is profitable.
In July 2013, Viber's online Kayako help desk was defaced by the Syrian Electronic Army. However, according to Kayako and Viber, this was related to a compromise of an individual's account password, and not a security vulnerability in the Kayako application itself.
Kayako has offices in three countries, including the following:
- Comparison of ticket-tracking systems
- Comparison of help desk issue tracking software
- Customer relationship management
- IT service management (ITSM)
- Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL)
