Kontiki is a peer-assisted content delivery company headquartered in the United States. Kontiki is characterized as peer-assisted because it uses a combination of central servers and peer-to-peer communications.
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.
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.
