Strata Identity Named Identity Startup of the Year by Analyst Firm KuppingerCole

Multi-Cloud Identity Orchestration Leader Recognized for Flexible No-Code, Policy-Driven Approach that Unifies Modern and Legacy Identity Sources and Applications


BOULDER, Colo., May 16, 2022 — Strata Identity, the Identity Orchestration for multi-cloud company, today announced it has been named Identity Startup of the Year in the prestigious 2022 European Identity and Cloud (EIC 2022) Awards by global analyst firm KuppingerCole.

KuppingerCole has been awarding outstanding projects in the digital identity and cybersecurity industries for 13 years. The winners were announced at the 15th European Identity and Cloud Conference and carefully chosen by a panel of KuppingerCole analysts from the most outstanding applications and solutions in the areas of IAM, CIAM, IoT, GRC, and IT Security.

According to KuppingerCole analysts, Strata was named Identity Start-Up of the Year for its innovative multi-cloud identity orchestration. Using a flexible, no-code, policy-driven approach, Strata enables the connection of identity sources and applications for a broad range of uses, from modern cloud to legacy platforms.

“Being named Identity Startup of the Year by KuppingerCole, one of the world’s leading authorities on identity and access management, is powerful validation for our unique approach to addressing the chaos of multi-cloud identity,” said Eric Olden, CEO of Strata Identity. “Virtually every organization needs to modernize their applications to benefit from the added security of cloud identity, but most are blocked from doing so because it requires rewriting their code. We have developed an identity orchestration platform that allows both old and new identity systems to coexist and work as one, eliminating this lock-in.”

Organizations currently have separate identity management systems for their internal applications and for each cloud platform they use. To fix this fragmentation, Strata developed the first distributed, standards-based identity orchestration platform that automates and synchronizes cloud identity management for on-premises, hybrid and multi-cloud environments. With Strata’s Maverics Identity Orchestration Platform™, organizations can maintain their old identity systems indefinitely while adding and using modern cloud identity systems, all coexisting without making code changes to applications, eliminating years of integration and migration effort.
