BOULDER, Colo., Oct. 6, 2022 —Strata Identity, the Identity Orchestration company, today announced it has appointed Chris Veith, Senior Director of Global Alliances. Chris joins Strata from Okta and will lead the company’s global systems integrator (GSI) partner program. He will manage Strata’s relationships with GSIs, including EY, Deloitte, and Wipro, who serve as trusted partners for Digital Transformation programs in the Global 2000 market.
“Global systems integrators are an integral part of our go-to-market strategy, given their ability to accelerate time to value for large enterprises they support,” said Eric Olden, CEO of Strata Identity. “Chris is a proven alliances executive with a stellar track record in the identity management market. He will help us build out our partner program and work with the world’s top GSIs to deliver highly scalable identity orchestration and integration solutions that meet the complex demands of the world’s largest organizations.”

“Strata’s Maverics platform enables enterprises to speed up digital transformation initiatives by simplifying application modernization, deploying passwordless authentication and crafting user journeys, while GSIs have the business vision and technical prowess to implement complex large-scale identity orchestration projects,” said Chris Veith. “I look forward to working with our GSI partners to help customers solve their identity management challenges, especially for customer identity and access management (CIAM) and fraud prevention use cases.”
Strata Identity is the leader in Identity Orchestration for hybrid and multi-cloud environments. The orchestration recipe-powered Maverics platform enables organizations to connect and control incompatible identity systems without changing the user access experience. By decoupling applications from identity, Maverics makes it possible to implement modern authentication like passwordless and enforce consistent access policies without refactoring source code. The company’s founders created the IDQL (Identity Query Language) standard and Hexa open-source software for multi-cloud policy orchestration and are co-authors of the SAML standard for SSO federation.
