About Strata

Strata is the leading provider of identity modernization and orchestration solutions to the hybrid and multi-cloud enterprise. Strata provides an identity fabric that helps customers secure, modernize, orchestrate, and analyze fragmented identity infrastructure. Our customers rely on us to create a truly distributed identity system so they can realize the full potential of application and data migration to the cloud.

Our Mission

Strata’s mission is to enable enterprise cloud adoption at scale, modernizing how enterprises secure, migrate, orchestrate, and analyze identity data across hybrid and multi-cloud environments, creating the third wave of identity management systems, the Identity Fabric.

Achieving the Mission

The world doesn’t need yet another identity provider or cloud SSO solution. What enterprises need is a way to make their identity systems behave and interact as if they were designed for the modern, distributed, hybrid, and multi-cloud architectures on which their applications and data now run.

To achieve that, we designed and built a hyper-scale and ultra-secure cloud platform that creates an Identity Fabric to orchestrate policy and workflows across heterogeneous identity domains deployed anywhere. And we are developing the Maverics open source community because we believe there should be free, open tools to make on-premises integration, upgrade, and migration cheaper, faster, and less painful.

Strata guarantees the security of your identity data, encrypting it in-transit and at-rest while controlling and keeping track of who uses it, how, where, and when.

Strata modernizes your identity systems so your migration from on-premises to the cloud is simple, quick, and a fraction of the cost of legacy upgrades.

Strata eliminates the risk of vendor lock-in, ensures enterprise agility, and makes sure identity data are consistently represented and governed anywhere.

Our Values

We believe that innovation comes when we are open to new ideas and are willing to take risks; that good ideas come from an environment that is inclusive and encourages diverse thinking; that integrity, openness, honesty, transparency, and accountability are what transform a company from a vendor into a true partner; and that good things happen when you surround yourself with good people who act with passion and have fun.

Who We Are

The Strata leadership team brings decades of identity management experience, imagining the first open standards for identity interoperability, creating the first cloud identity services, delivering the first open source identity products, and building the first developer-centric identity platform.
Over the past 20 years, we have built the foundations of the 1) Enterprise 2) SaaS and 3) Hybrid waves of identity as founders of pioneering startups Symplified, Securant, and JumpCloud - as members of core early teams at Auth0 and Ping Identity - and as product executives running Oracle’s global identity and Salesforce’s cloud data protection solutions.
We’ve supported thousands of customers deploying the world’s most demanding identity implementations. This vast experience led us to believe that in our rapidly changing world identities can and should be more secure, portable, and adaptable. As the technology landscape has evolved, we’ve innovated new ways of creating, managing, and securing identities, and Strata represents the next step in this evolution.
