Strata Identity Executive to Present at KuppingerCole EIC Conference 2023


Gerry Gebel, Head of Standards at Strata Identity, Will Explain How Identity Query Language (IDQL) and Open Source Hexa Software Can Address Policy Fragmentation Across Incompatible Cloud Platforms

BOULDER, Colo., May 3, 2023 — Strata Identity, the Identity Orchestration company, today announced that Gerry Gebel, Head of Standards, will present a session on Standardizing Access Policies with IDQL/Hexa for multi-cloud environments on May 10 at the European Identity and Cloud Conference 2023 hosted by analyst firm KuppingerCole.¬†

WHO: Gerry Gebel is Head of Standards for Strata Identity. He has over 20 years of experience in requirements definition, architecture development, and strategic planning for identity management projects with Fortune 500 corporations. Gerry has been a senior executive with Axiomatics, a global provider of access control solutions, and served as Vice President and Service Director with research firm Burton Group for nearly a decade. He started his career in the technology group at Chase Manhattan Bank (now part of JPMorgan Chase).

WHAT: The use of multiple clouds is accelerating across all industries. This has created some significant new challenges, especially when it comes to managing access policies, which are platform-specific and proprietary due to the syntax used by each cloud service provider. This policy fragmentation creates security and risk gaps, making it difficult to determine who has access to what. This session will explain and demonstrate how Identity Query Language (IDQL) and the open-source Hexa software (a CNCF Sandbox Project) work in tandem to address multi-cloud access, including discovery, translation, and orchestration across the data, network, and platform layers of an organization’s technology stack.

WHEN: Wednesday, May 10, 2023, at 3:50‚ÄĒ4:10 PM CET
From A (ACLs) to Z (Zanzibar): Standardizing Access Policies with IDQL/Hexa

WHERE: European Identity and Cloud Conference 2023, Berlin Congress Center, Alexanderstr. 11, 10178, Berlin, Germany – Session Location: B 07-08
