Senior Vice President and General Manager, Security and Identity
Eric Olden is senior vice president and general manager of security and identity at Oracle. He is responsible for driving Oracle’s vision of cloud identity and security, autonomous and integrated identity, and security built for the cloud. Olden oversees Oracle identity management and security strategy and product development.
Olden joined Oracle in 2017 and previously was cofounder and CEO of Symplified, an early leader in cloud identity and access management. He architected and led the development of one of the first SaaS single signon and access management solutions, and spearheaded integrations with cloud IaaS platforms to create a cloud-native 'trust fabric' that enabled identity to be consumed as a global cloud service, with dial-tone simplicity. Prior to that, Olden was cofounder and CTO of identity management pioneer Securant Technologies and an architect at ClearTrust.
Olden holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of California at Berkeley. He is also the coauthor of what became SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) and has been awarded multiple patents.
