Ribose Wins Red Herring Top 100 Global Award

Joins prestigious list of global technology innovators with its secure cloud collaboration platform

[Hong Kong] – 24 November 2015 – Ribose has become the first secure cloud collaboration company to win an exclusive Red Herring 2015 Top 100 Global Award, joining a prestigious list of rising technology stars. Ribose’s platform democratizes collaboration technology – previously only affordable to large enterprises and government organizations – by putting world-class security and technology into the hands of all users, absolutely free.

This year’s Top 100 Global award had a particularly competitive lineup consisting of previous winners of the Top 100 Asia, Europe and North America awards over the past 3 years. Red Herring launched the Top 100 Global forum knowing the value of an international gathering where entrepreneurs, financiers, and corporate executives could meet and build meaningful relationships, both personal and professional, in a private and intimate setting.

Red Herring’s Top 100 Global is a prestigious recognition that recognizes the most promising private technology ventures from Asia, Europe and North America. The list has become a mark of distinction for up-and-coming companies and entrepreneurs, and Ribose joins prominent previous Top 100 Global alumni including Google, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Salesforce.com, eBay and YouTube. This global award follows Ribose’s selection as winner of Red Herring’s Top 100 Asia in September 2015.

Every year, the Red Herring editorial team selects nominees for evaluation based on a number of quantitative and qualitative factors, including financial performance, technological innovation, quality of management, execution of strategy and integration into their respective industries. After presenting its secure cloud collaboration platform to judges at the Red Herring Global Forum held in Los Angeles, California on 17-19 November 2015, Ribose was named a winner of this year’s award.

Over the past year, Ribose became the world’s first cloud service provider triple-assured by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), having achieved all three of the CSA’s stringent assurance programs. Moreover, Ribose has created the world’s most extensive integrated management system certified to the PAS 99 standard, and become the first organization outside the UK to achieve ISO 9001:2015 certification and the world’s 2nd organization to receive ISO14001:2015 certification. Working to ensure the security of users’ information, the company also received certification to ISO/IEC 27018 for cloud privacy in September.

Ribose provides the world’s most stringent specified security requirements for all users by advocating a ‘highest-bar’ approach to cloud security and privacy. With its accessibility, dependability and security, the Ribose platform gives users the peace of mind to focus on their tasks at hand.

“It was a challenging task to select the ‘best of the best’ from the past 3 years’ winners,” said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. “After rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from 1,200 potential companies to 200 finalists. The top 100 companies that were chosen should be extremely proud. Ribose - with its focus on cloud security, data privacy and management standards – distinguished itself from an extremely competitive field through its vision, drive and commitment to innovation.”

“Offering enterprise-strength collaboration technology with world-class security to all users, completely free of charge, Ribose has shifted the paradigm of the cloud collaboration space. Giving individuals and teams the tools to work seamlessly together beyond the constraints of time and physical location, Ribose has created a platform truly worthy of inclusion in Red Herring’s Top 100 Global – thereby joining a distinguished list of leaders and innovators in the technology industry,” said Anam Alpenia, Managing Director of Herring International.

Ribose founder Ronald Tse added, “Ribose is delighted to be named as a Red Herring Top 100 Global company following our inclusion in Red Herring’s Top 100 Asia list in September 2015. We stand humbled alongside the highly successful private companies at the competition this year, and truly appreciate the judges’ recognition of our mission to democratize secure cloud collaboration and the dedication of our team.

“As the world becomes more globalized; people become more interconnected; and innovation and inventions increasingly arise from multidisciplinary work that spans the globe. By facilitating teamwork and collaboration, Ribose is empowering entrepreneurs and inventors around the world to work together for the benefit of future generations,” explained Tse.

Tse concluded, “We’d like to thank Alex and the team at Red Herring for their vision and foresight in identifying the world’s most promising up-and-coming technology pioneers. This award is a source of great pride and encouragement to our team at Ribose, inspiring us to charge ahead with our mission of bringing world-class, highly secure collaboration technology to all of our users.”

New release: emojis, IDNs/gTLDs, avatars, named poll, network status monitoring

Hello everyone,

We've just deployed our latest release, bringing a number of bugfixes as well as much awaited features, including:


  • Emoji (and full unicode) support: For all text, everywhere. A picture's worth more than a thousand words!

  • Support for IDNs and gTLD email addresses: Previously emails containing non-ASCII characters and international domain names such as .在线, .みんな, .شبكة or .сайт were not supported. Now they all are and treated as first-class citizens -- the same way as ASCII email addresses are. Similarly we now support all valid gTLDs in account emails.

  • Avatars: Default avatars for users and spaces are now using the initials of their names. This allows users to easily differentiate between spaces that don't have personalized avatars to some extent. Of course, we recommend every space to set a descriptive avatar for your users' sake!

  • Poll: Anonymous and named polls. Previously you can only issue anonymous polls, and we received a lot of feedback requesting for "named polls" that allows showing who voted for which option in the voting results. You can now do this when you select "Poll Anonymity > Named" when creating a poll.

  • Network status monitoring: The application is now aware whenever the network goes offline, with a friendly reminder that changes made won't be saved at the time.

  • Security hardening and performance enhancements across the board, where the bulk of the release is about.

Any problems, feedback or general comments, feel free to contact us through the feedback form, or email support@ribose.com.

Thank you again for your support!

Ribose becomes first organization outside UK to achieve new ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certification

World’s first technology company to achieve certification by BSI

[Hong Kong] – 25 September 2015 – Cloud collaboration platform provider Ribose has become the first organization outside of the UK to achieve accredited certification to ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015, the newly revised international standards for Quality Management Systems and Environmental Management Systems. Ribose is also the first technology company worldwide to receive ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certification.

ISO 9001 is the world’s most widely recognized standard for quality management systems, and its latest revision was published on 23 September 2015. The standard helps organizations consistently meet the needs of customers and other key stakeholders in both the delivery and continuous improvement of products and services.

ISO 14001 is the world’s first international standard for environmental management systems, with its latest revision published on 15 September 2015. This standard helps organizations comply with environmental regulations, minimizing their environmental footprint and improving their environmental performance.

The new standards both feature a high level structure (HLS) – including terms, definitions, headings and text common to all management system standards in accordance to ISO Annex SL – allowing easier integration when implementing multiple management systems. Both of the new standards improve over previous revisions by requiring organizations to prioritize business needs, improving efficiency by implementing organizational-wide risk based thinking, better risk management, and enhanced leadership responsibility.

Ribose’s independent assessment and certification was performed by BSI (British Standards Institution), the originator of the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards, and the first globally accredited certification body for ISO 9001:2015 as well as currently the only globally accredited certification body for ISO 14001:2015, both accredited by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB). Ribose’s revised certifications were issued the day ISO 9001:2015 was published, and the day after BSI received the world’s first ISO 14001:2015 accreditation from ANAB.

Ribose’s founder Ronald Tse explained, “Ribose is honored to be the first organization outside the UK – and the first technology company in the world – to achieve compliance to the new ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards. Internationally certified, world-class corporate governance is one of our hallmarks, and we remain committed to upholding the highest standards of governance and transparency.”

“Ribose has been using the new ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 draft standards to improve internal performance since they were first published in 2014. After assessing the revisions and their implications, we’ve been able to ensure our implementation takes full advantage of the new structure to streamline operations and enhance environmental performance,” Tse continued.

Tse concluded, “Achieving certification to these latest ISO standards demonstrates Ribose’s ongoing dedication to achieving the highest levels of corporate governance and environmental responsibility.”

Emmanuel Hervé, VP, Standards & Professional Solutions and Managing Director Hong Kong of BSI, said, “Ribose has achieved a major milestone in becoming the first organization outside of the UK to achieve simultaneous certification to the newly published ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards – confirming their commitment to continuous improvement of governance, practices and performance. It is encouraging to see a smaller organization like Ribose operating to the same stringent standards as the best-managed companies in the world.”
