Strata is the distributed multi-cloud identity company

Strata pioneered distributed multi-cloud identity by focusing on solutions for enterprises with complex combinations of cloud and legacy identity systems.

Strata’s vision is a new distributed approach to identity management. We call this an Identity Fabric.


Our mission is to allow you to manage all of your identities, for all of your apps, on all of your clouds.

The problem with multi-cloud identity is fragmentation. The answer is distributed Identity.

When companies adopt multi-cloud and hybrid, identity infrastructure becomes fragmented and apps get locked in by legacy identity systems. Innovation slows, costs rise, security and compliance suffer. We believe that distributed identity management built on the Maverics Platform™ is the best way to solve the modern enterprise identity problem.

We believe that innovation comes when we challenge the status quo and are open to new ideas

As a team of Maverics, we believe in taking risks. We know that good ideas come from an environment that is inclusive and encourages diverse thinking; that integrity, openness, honesty, transparency, accountability, and empowerment are what transform a company from a vendor into a true partner; and that good things happen when you surround yourself with good people who act with passion and have fun.

Strata’s leadership team has a combined 110 years of identity management experience

Our founders imagined the first open standards for identity interoperability, created the first cloud identity services, delivered the first open-source identity products, and are now building the first distributed identity platform.

Eric has made a career out of simplifying and securing enterprise identity management. He founded, scaled, and successfully exited both Securant/ClearTrust (Web Access Management) and Symplified, (the first IDaaS company).
Recently Eric served as SVP and GM at Oracle, where he ran the identity and security business worldwide and was responsible for product development, go-to-market, and partnerships. As a technologist, he was a co-author of the SAML standard, created the first pre-integrated SSO platform, and is the visionary behind the Identity Fabric™.

Topher brings deep experience with cloud-scale identity and security architectures to Strata. Prior to Strata, Topher was Chief Cloud Architect for Oracle’s cloud identity and security portfolio globally.

Topher was Product Owner at Auth0, was co-founder of JumpCloud, a venture-backed identity company, was Symplified’s lead architect, and got his start in identity at Ping. Topher travels extensively, developing a deep appreciation for local cultures, foods, and languages.

Eric brings to Strata 20 years of leading product strategy, creating go-to-market success, and inspiring innovation for identity management, application security, and data protection products at Apcera, Salesforce, Oracle, and Sun.

Eric has applied his passion for solving customer problems to products such as Salesforce Shield, the fastest growing product in that company’s history, the OpenSSO project, the industry’s first open-source enterprise identity product, and Oracle’s market-leading identity management products.
