Ribose joins CDSA to promote intellectual property security

Facilitating collaboration throughout the intellectual property lifecycle

Hong Kong, 9 June 2014 – Ribose, a start-up redefining the way people collaborate, has joined the Content Delivery and Security Association (CDSA) to promote the development of intellectual property security. Committed to an open Internet, Ribose believes respect for intellectual property is necessary for people to work together efficiently, effectively and enjoyably.

A global forum for electronic intellectual property security, CDSA develops international standards for content protection and security, and performs audits to verify compliance. Its members include the world’s largest intellectual property owners, including Adobe, Sony, Microsoft and the Walt Disney Company.

Ronald Tse, Founder of Ribose, explains, “Ribose is proud to be joining CDSA in working to protect intellectual property. Together, we are joining forces to provide guidance and leadership for the technology industry and cloud service providers – setting parameters to strengthen security and promote responsible content storage and delivery.

“CDSA is delighted to welcome our newest member, pioneering cloud service provider Ribose. By joining CDSA, Ribose has made a strong statement that the Internet’s benefits need not compromise information security or intellectual property rights,” stated James Wise, Director of Anti-Piracy and Compliance Programs of CDSA in Asia. “We are confident Ribose will play an active role in helping innovators worldwide improve the protection of intellectual property.”

As the first Software-as-a-Service cloud service provider to earn certification for CDSA’s Content Security and Protection accreditation program, Ribose upholds strict standards of privacy and security.

“With our commitment to information security and intellectual property protection, Ribose provides a platform users can employ with confidence,” concluded Tse. “We treat our users as collaborators and associates. Our relationships are based on their trust in Ribose’s systems and our respect for their data.”

Ribose first to achieve CSA STAR Certification under new CCM 3.0 cloud security standard

Ribose first to achieve CSA STAR Certification under new CCM 3.0 cloud security standard

Hong Kong, 10 March, 2014 – Ribose, a start-up that redefines the way people collaborate, is the first to achieve STAR Certification from the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) fully compliant to the new cloud security standard: Cloud Controls Matrix (CCM) 3.0.

This certification means that Ribose is committed to protecting user information to the greatest extent possible. Users can be confident their privacy and data will always be respected and protected, and that they can collaborate freely on Ribose to innovate and succeed with their teams.

Ribose is currently the only organization to achieve STAR Certification compliance under the new CCM 3.0 standard. It is one of only two organizations worldwide to achieve Gold Certification, the highest level, based on its security measures and controls as assessed by the British Standards Institution (BSI). Ribose is also the first software-as-a-service (SaaS) cloud service provider to achieve STAR Certification under CCM 3.0 with SaaS services fully covered in the certification scope.

STAR Certification is the first internationally recognized cloud security certification program. Developed jointly by the CSA and BSI, it places stringent and extensive requirements and controls on information security management systems, including comprehensive coverage of cloud security. Certification is awarded only after a CSA-recognized independent auditor conducts a thorough audit and verifies that the organization’s applications, systems, processes and services fully comply with STAR’s requirements, including ISO/IEC 27001 and CCM 3.0.

According to David Horlock, Asia Pacific Managing Director, BSI, “CSA STAR Certification is a rigorous assessment by a CSA-recognized independent body and provides customers with a benchmark to make informed decisions on cloud services. Achieving the Gold award shows Ribose’s leadership and commitment to delivering professional and secure cloud services through world-class best practices”.

“CSA STAR Certification is a comprehensive, industry-accepted program covering numerous security control areas and capabilities”, said Jim Reavis, CEO of CSA. “As the first to adopt and verify compliance with the new CCM 3.0 cloud security standard, Ribose has demonstrated its commitment to cloud security, giving users confidence to collaborate freely on the Ribose platform”.
