July 19, 2021, 09:11 AM Eastern Daylight Time BOULDER, Colo.-Strata Identity, the distributed, multi-cloud identity orchestration company, today announced that it has been named to the 2021 Emerging Vendors list in the security category by CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company. This annual list honors new and up-and-coming technology vendors that have proven their commitment to innovation and growth within the larger IT channel. Strata also recently released Maverics Identity Discovery, a free software tool that automates the manual process of identifying and cataloging on-premises identity environments, to reduce cloud migration project times from months to hours.

“Being named to the CRN Emerging Vendors list in our first year of operation is a high achievement and tremendous honor,” said Eric Olden, CEO of Strata Identity. “With legacy on-premises identity systems reaching end-of-life next year, there’s a significant opportunity for service providers to help customers migrate to the Cloud. Strata provides the automation they need to seamlessly bridge the old and new world of identity.”

Strata’s Maverics Identity Orchestration Platform™ is the first distributed, standards-based orchestration solution that automates multi-cloud and hybrid cloud identity management. With Maverics, companies and service providers can enable legacy on-premises identity to coexist indefinitely with modern cloud identity systems, all without making any code changes to their applications. The average large enterprise has hundreds of applications. Because identity systems are tightly integrated with each application, Maverics represents a game-changer for companies that are undergoing digital transformation, modernization, and cloud migration.

With a commanding grasp of the IT industry’s unique needs, technology vendors featured on the CRN 2021 Emerging Vendors list allow solution providers to tackle complex IT market challenges, increase bottom-line revenue across the board, and deliver customer-facing solutions that ensure the IT channel’s ongoing success well into the future.

“The CRN 2021 Emerging Vendors list honors forward-thinking technology suppliers like Strata Identity that are redefining IT channel success by focusing on innovative products that help customers overcome the complex and ever-changing IT demands,” said Blaine Raddon, CEO of The Channel Company. “Solution providers in search of the latest innovative technologies can depend on the Emerging Vendors list as a trusted resource.”

The CRN 2021 Emerging Vendors list will be featured in the August 2021 issue of CRN Magazine and online at
