BOULDER, Colorado–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Strata Identity, the multi-cloud identity orchestration company, today announced that it has been recognized as a “Representative Vendor” in Gartner 2022 Innovation Insight: Journey-Time Orchestration Mitigate Fraud Risk and Provide Better UX report.

The Gartner report states, “To protect the integrity of users’ digital journeys, organizations use a range of tools spanning bot mitigation, identity verification and affirmation, user authentication, authorization and fraud detection, in addition to adjacent capabilities such as risk analysis and access management. Building and maintaining these many integrations is complex and incurs operational overhead in terms of time and resources.” The report further states that “this lack of an integrated approach to risk management across the digital user journey hinders the adoption of principles of continuous adaptive trust and leads to a unique user experience (UX) that does not cannot be modulated according to the risk”.
According to Gartner, “Security and Risk Management (SRM) managers responsible for identity and access management (IAM) and fraud detection should:
Reduce risk along digital user journeys by deploying a journeytime orchestration solution to deliver a layered approach involving multiple features. The term journey time refers to the real-time digital journey as the user interacts with the application.
Remove the complexity of managing multi-vendor integrations by leveraging such an orchestration solution to provide a marketplace of out-of-the-box connections.
Simplify risk assessment at events along the user journey by using an orchestration tool to define which signals are of interest per event and defining policies at each event level. » 
“Note that none of the following capabilities constitute an orchestration:
Pure ingestion of risk signals from multiple sources to arrive at a consolidated decision.
Management of multiple native features of a single-vendor solution to enable workflow management”.
“By decoupling applications from identity, Strata’s Maverics orchestration platform enables customers to leverage no-code use case recipes to integrate and control incompatible identity systems without changing the experience. user or rewrite their applications,” said Eric Olden, CEO of Strata Identity. “We believe this report highlights that orchestration involves managing multiple capabilities through more than just a single-vendor solution to enable workflow management.”
