Strata Identity Named Finalist in SC Awards for Best Identity Management Solution

Maverics Identity Orchestration Platform shortlisted for unifying on-premises, multi-cloud, and hybrid identity environments 

BOULDER, Colo., May 16, 2023 — Strata Identity, the Identity Orchestration company, today announced it has been recognized as a finalist for the Trust Award in the Best Identity Management Solution category for the 2023 SC Awards. Now in its 26th year, the SC Awards are cybersecurity’s most prestigious and competitive program. Finalists are recognized for outstanding solutions, organizations, and people driving innovation and success in information security. 

The significance of the SC Magazine Trust Award for Best Identity Management Solution

“Being named a finalist for Best Identity Management Solution by the SC Awards validates the customer need for unifying identity management across legacy on-premises and modern cloud systems,” said Eric Olden, CEO and Co-founder of Strata Identity. “Maverics is the only Identity Orchestration platform that allows enterprises to mix and match incompatible identity systems without rewriting each application or changing the user experience.”

Modernizing applications for the cloud creates an expensive and complex “hybrid limbo” where organizations must continue to support legacy, on-premises identity systems while adding new cloud identity providers (IDPs) and cloud services. Currently, identity systems are hardcoded into each application, so they must be rewritten if an organization wants to adopt a modern cloud identity system. Also, each cloud platform (e.g., AWS, Azure, GCP) uses its own proprietary identity system, which is incompatible with other cloud identity systems and older, on-premises identity systems. 

Why Strata Identity’s Maverics Identity Orchestration Platform was selected as an SC Magazine 2023 finalist

Maverics abstracts identity from applications using a flexible identity fabric that bridges previously siloed and incompatible identity systems. Decoupling identity eliminates the need to rewrite applications to support a new IDP. This reduces the time it takes to modernize one app from several months to under 10 minutes. Maverics enables organizations to quickly, securely, and permanently modernize applications on any cloud IDP. The platform also includes easy-to-implement Orchestration Recipes that help enterprises solve complex IAM use cases, such as moving to passwordless MFA, supporting multiple IDPs, and more. 

In addition, Strata’s Maverics Platform allows customers to: 

  • Fine-tune control settings with flexible, legacy, and cloud coexistence
    With Maverics, administrators can easily implement both new and legacy identity providers to allow for the phased deployment of a new IDP across the enterprise.
  • Reduce identity risk with improved flexibility
    Maverics makes every change easily reversible in seconds without outages. With Maverics, it is possible to evaluate different authentication providers without restarting applications or IDPs.
  • Create frictionless access for users
    Maverics makes it possible to quickly integrate new IDPs with existing apps creating little to no downtime for end users. With Maverics, it’s easy to build an onboarding flow to bring new customers and workforce members into an IDP and provision access to applications automatically.
