Strata Identity Named in the 2023 Gartner® Innovation Insight for Journey-Time Orchestration Report

Strata’s Maverics journey-time orchestration capabilities help reduce complexity, mitigate risk, and deliver a more dynamic user experience

BOULDER, Colo., Dec. 20, 2023 – Strata Identity, the Identity Orchestration company, today announced it has been named a Representative Vendor by Gartner in the 2023 Innovation Insight: Journey-Time Orchestration Mitigates Fraud Risk and Delivers Better UX1 by analyst Akif Khan. As stated in the research: “Orchestration solutions improve the efficacy and efficiency of risk management along digital user journeys.

According to the Gartner, Inc. report recommendations: “Security and risk management (SRM) leaders responsible for identity and access management (IAM) and fraud detection should:

  • Reduce risk along digital user journeys by deploying a journey-time orchestration solution to deliver a layered approach involving multiple capabilities. 
  • Abstract away the complexity of managing multiple vendor integrations by leveraging such an orchestration solution to deliver a marketplace of ready-made connections. 
  • Simplify the assessment of risk at events across the user journey by using an orchestration tool to define which signals are of interest per event and defining policies at each event level.
  • Deliver a tailored and dynamic risk-based UX by using an orchestration solution to connect the analytics layer, UI layer, and access management tools. 

The orchestration solution can manage the assessment of risk at different events and broker calls between systems across the user journey to drive UX.”

“Strata’s Maverics identity orchestration platform provides journey-time orchestration by creating an identity fabric that decouples identity from applications and bridges siloed and incompatible identity systems across multi-cloud, on-premises, and hybrid identity infrastructures, without rewriting apps,” said Eric Olden, CEO of Strata Identity. “We believe that Maverics provides a range of notable customer benefits and uses by abstracting away multiple integrations to internal and external signals, implementing risk management along user journeys in a low-code/no-code manner, and unifying the definition and enforcement of dynamic risk management policies.”

The Gartner report also states: “When selecting vendors, organizations must consider their orchestration requirements and ensure they are investing in solutions with long-term ROI and a strategic position in the market that is future-proofed as far out as possible. Note that neither of the following capabilities constitute orchestration:

  • Purely ingesting risk signals from multiple sources to arrive at a consolidated decision.
  • Management of multiple capabilities that are native to a single-vendor solution to enable workflow management.”
