Strata CEO Invited to Present at the Cloud Security Alliance’s SECtember 2022 Conference

Eric Olden to Explain How a New Open Source Standard Works to Tame Multi-Cloud IAM, Allowing for Consistent Identity Orchestration and Policy Enforcement

BOULDER, Colo., Sept. 19, 2022 – Strata Identity, the Identity Orchestration for multi-cloud company, announced today that Eric Olden, its Co-Founder, and Chief Executive Officer, has been invited to present at the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) SECtember 2022 Conference, where he will explain a new, standards-based approach for multi-cloud identity management.  

WHO: Eric Olden, CEO of Strata Identity, is the visionary behind the Maverics multi-cloud identity orchestration platform and the open source IDQL multi-cloud identity orchestration standard. He was a co-author of the SAML standard, created the first pre-integrated SSO platform (Securant/ClearTrust) and the first IDaaS company (Symplified). Eric also served as SVP and GM at Oracle, where he ran the identity and security business worldwide and was responsible for product development, go-to-market, and partnerships. 

WHAT: Analyst firm Gartner projects that 80% of corporate IT will be cloud-based by 2025, with 81% using two or more cloud platforms. Because each cloud platform has its own identity system, organizations are struggling to manage identity and enforce consistent policies across their distributed, multi-cloud environments. Eric will detail the challenges associated with managing identities in a multi-cloud world. He will introduce the new IDQL open source standard accepted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) that can bridge incompatible identity systems, orchestrate identity management, and align policy enforcement across distributed architectures. Finally, he will explain how this standards-based orchestration framework will facilitate digital transformation and modernization projects that benefit businesses, consumers, and software vendors.

WHEN: Eric will present “How New CNCF Standard Tames Multi-Cloud Identity” on Thursday, September 29, 2022, at 2:10 PM-2:35 PM PDT,  /Meydenbauer Center, Bellevue, WA.
WHERE: Cloud Security Alliance SECtember 2022 Conference at the Meydenbauer Center, 11100 NE 6th St., Bellevue, WA 98004.
