Identity Orchestration Technology Leader Ranked Among Highest Scoring Businesses in Micro Category for Prestigious HR Award


BOULDER, Colo., May 10, 2022 — Strata Identity, the Identity Orchestration for multi-cloud company, today announced it has been named to Inc. magazine’s annual Best Workplaces list for prizing employee wellbeing and shaping workplace values. Featured in the May/June 2022 issue, hitting newsstands on May 17, 2022, and prominently featured on, the list is the result of a comprehensive measurement of American companies that have excelled in creating exceptional workplaces and company culture, whether operating in a physical or virtual facility. 

Organizations currently have separate identity management systems for their internal applications and for each cloud platform they use. To fix this fragmentation, Strata has 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. 

After collecting data from thousands of submissions, Inc. selected 475 honorees this year. Each nominated company took part in an employee survey conducted by Quantum Workplace, which included topics such as management effectiveness, perks, fostering employee growth, and overall company culture. The organization’s benefits were also audited to determine the overall score and ranking.

“Strata is solving the biggest identity management problems in the cloud today, and we have attracted some of the industry’s leading technologists and experts to join us on this journey,” said Eric Olden, CEO, and Co-founder of Strata Identity. “From the beginning, we focused on creating a company where we can all be challenged and supported to grow, have opportunities for meaningful connection with others, are invited to show up as our full selves, and be well rewarded through our shared successes. And like our software, which is distributed, we have offices in the US (Boulder) and Vancouver (Canada). We couldn’t be prouder to be named an Inc. Best Workplace, based on our employee feedback.”

“Not long ago, the term ‘best workplace’ would have conjured up images of open-office designs with stocked snack fridges,” says Inc. editor-in-chief Scott Omelianuk. “Yet, given the widespread adoption of remote work, the workplace concept has shifted. This year, Inc. has recognized the organizations dedicated to redefining and enriching the workplace in the face of the pandemic.”
