Strata Identity Joins Cloud Security Alliance to Advance Multi-Cloud Identity Interoperability
The Identity Orchestration Company will work with alliance members on initiatives for identity orchestration and open-source IDQL Standard
BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 8, 2022 –Strata Identity, the Identity Orchestration company, today announced it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the world’s leading organization dedicated to defining and raising awareness of best practices to help ensure a secure cloud computing environment.
Strata Identity’s founders created ClearTrust, the first web single sign-on platform, Symplified, the first Identity as a Service (IDaaS) offering, and co-authored the ubiquitous SAML identity federation standard. The company’s Maverics Identity Orchestration Platform enables incompatible cloud identity systems to function as one, so customers can unify access policies and governance. Strata is also a founding member of the open-source identity federation software Hexa, a CNCF sandbox project, and the IDQL standard for policy orchestration.
How Strata Identity will work with the CSA members
“Lack of interoperability between individual cloud identity platforms and their legacy on-premises brethren is holding back app modernization and cloud migration projects,” said Eric Olden, CEO of Strata Identity. “We look forward to collaborating with the CSA’s extensive community of vendors, enterprises, and industry influencers to advance open standards for cloud identity orchestration.”
“We’re excited to welcome Strata Identity as a member of CSA,” said Jim Reavis, co-founder, and CEO of the Cloud Security Alliance. “Strata’s expertise in multi-cloud identity orchestration and its founders’ pioneering work in identity management will help our members address app modernization challenges. We look forward to collaborating with Strata to increase awareness of identity orchestration in the cloud.”
