BOULDER, Colo., Jan. 23, 2024 – Strata Identity, the Identity Orchestration company, today announced that Erik Ruby has joined the company as Head of Sales. The former Sumo Logic and SnapLogic executive brings a wealth of cloud security, SaaS, and infrastructure domain expertise to Strata’s management team and will lead market expansion for the Maverics Identity Orchestration platform.

We are glad to welcome Erik to the management team.”
Who is Erik Ruby?
Erik joins Strata from SnapLogic, an application, data, and cloud integration platform provider, where he led North American sales.

It’s an exciting time to join Strata. I look forward to helping build the next leader in enterprise identity management.”
