Strata Identity | January 04, 2023 | Read time : 01:59 min

Strata Identity, a company that provides identity orchestration services, has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a global organization focused on promoting best practices for secure cloud computing. Strata Identity will work with CSA members on projects related to the open source IDQL Standard and identity orchestration. The open source IDQL Standard and identity orchestration are two ways that Strata Identity is working to make cloud computing safer.

Strata Identity's platform allows incompatible cloud identity systems to work together, allowing customers to unify access policies and governance. The company is also a founding member of Hexa, an open source identity federation software, and the IDQL Standard for policy orchestration. Strata Identity wants to make cloud computing safe for its customers by helping them bring their access policies and governance together.

"Lack of interoperability between individual cloud identity platforms and their legacy on-premises brethren is holding back app modernization and cloud migration projects. We look forward to collaborating with the CSA’s extensive community of vendors, enterprises, and industry influencers to advance open standards for cloud identity orchestration."

Eric Olden, CEO of Strata Identity

Eric Olden, CEO of Strata Identity, said the company is looking forward to collaborating with the CSA to advance open standards for cloud identity orchestration. The CEO of the CSA, Jim Reavis, said that Strata Identity's expertise in multi-cloud identity orchestration will help CSA members deal with problems related to app modernization. Strata Identity is going to work with the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) to help advance open standards for cloud identity orchestration.
