BOULDER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Strata Identity, the Identity Orchestration for multi-cloud company, today announced it is a finalist in the Security Software Innovator of the Year category of the 2022 Microsoft Security Excellence Awards. Microsoft will celebrate finalists in 10 award categories on June 5, honoring partner trailblazers, solution innovators, customer and technology champions, and changemakers.
Organizations currently have separate identity management systems for their internal applications and for each cloud platform they use. Strata's Maverics Identity Orchestration Platform™ enables organizations to add and use modern cloud identity systems, like Azure Active Directory without making code changes to applications. Maverics makes modernization simple and eliminates years of resources that would be tied up in manual integration and migration efforts.
“Being selected as a finalist by Microsoft as Software Security Innovator of the Year from the invitation-only community of companies in the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) is a tremendous honor,” said Eric Olden, CEO of Strata Identity. “In collaboration with Microsoft, we are helping companies transparently modernize apps with Azure Active Directory and add advanced Microsoft Identity and Security services without rewriting their applications.”
“The Microsoft Intelligent Security Association has grown into a vibrant ecosystem, comprised of the most reliable and trusted security software vendors across the globe”, said Maria Thomson, Microsoft Intelligent Security Association Lead. “Our members share Microsoft's commitment to collaboration within the cybersecurity community to improve our customers' ability to predict, detect, and respond to security threats faster. We're thrilled to honor our incredible finalists in the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards and recognize their achievements during the past year.”
The Microsoft Security Excellence Awards (formerly the Microsoft Security 20/20 Awards) will recognize Microsoft partners for their outstanding work in the security landscape. The industry veterans in MISA and Microsoft will vote to select the winner, providing an opportunity for colleagues to honor their peers for delivering exceptional work to our shared customers.
MISA was established to bring together Microsoft leaders, Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), and Managed Security Services providers (MSSPs) to work together to defeat security threats and make the world a safer place.
