Eric Olden is a maverick that has pioneered 3 major paradigm shifts in Identity and Access management. He founded, scaled, and successfully exited both Securant/ClearTrust (Web Access Management) and Symplified, (the first IDaaS company). He recently served as SVP and GM at Oracle, where he ran the identity and security business worldwide.
As a technologist, he was a co-author of the SAML standard, creating the first pre-integrated SSO platform, and is the visionary behind the Identity Fabric. With an obsession for simplifying the way we work as an industry, Eric wrote a new identity standard called Identity Query Language (IDQL) which provides a common language for policy management in a multi-cloud world.
Eric’s latest company Strata is the first distributed identity platform that solves the problem of fragmentation through a no-code software solution.
