Ribose first Cloud Service Provider to achieve Multi-Tier Cloud Security certification

Compliant to Singapore Standard SS 584, world’s first multi-tiered cloud standard

Singapore/Hong Kong, 5 August 2014 – Ribose has become the world’s first cloud service provider (CSP) to achieve Singapore’s Multi-Tier Cloud Security (MTCS) certification.

Initiated by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) and developed under the Information Technology Standards Committee (ITSC), the MTCS is a Singapore Standard (SS 584:2013) that specifies stringent security and operational requirements for CSPs to encourage adoption of sound risk management and security practices. The certification specifies three tiers of security certification, with level three being the highest.

Ribose’s level one MTCS certification was awarded after thorough evaluation by BSI (British Standards Institution), a participating Certification Body for the MTCS standard.

IDA Assistant Chief Executive Khoong Hock Yun said, “Cloud computing is a key enabler for Singapore’s drive to become a Smart Nation. Security of the cloud is a critical concern answered by the Multi-Tier Cloud Security standard. We are heartened that global industry players have taken a keen interest in it and are signing on to adopt the measures.”

“BSI has demonstrated its leadership position in cloud security certification by delivering the world’s first MTCS certification to Ribose. Through our global network of BSI offices, we are proud to have been Ribose’s certification partner in several milestone security certification -- including ISO/IEC 27001:2013, CSA’s STAR and now MTCS,” explained Owen Xu, General Manager of BSI Singapore. “These multiple certifications stand as clear testament of Ribose’s dedication to data security and privacy.”

According to Ribose founder Ronald Tse, “By achieving MTCS certification, Ribose has reached another milestone in our commitment to data security and protection. This latest achievement further enhances our comprehensive portfolio of security certifications, giving users the peace of mind to collaborate online with confidence using the Ribose platform. We thank the IDA and BSI for their guidance and support, which have enabled Ribose to become the world’s first MTCS certified cloud service provider.”

Ribose awarded PAS 99 certification for integrated management systems

Ribose awarded PAS 99 certification for integrated management systems

Achieves internationally certified corporate governance and compliance management

Hong Kong, 17 June 2014 – Ribose has achieved PAS 99:2012 certification, the internationally accepted framework for integrated management systems (IMS).

Ribose is the first collaboration platform in the world and the first organization in Hong Kong to achieve this certification. Ribose’s IMS integrates its existing business continuity and information security management systems, satisfying both ISO 22301:2012 and ISO 27001:2013, the international standards for business continuity and information security, respectively.

Ribose’s certification was awarded by BSI (British Standards Institution), the originator of the PAS 99, ISO 22301 and ISO 27001 standards. Certification is awarded only after an independent accredited auditor has thoroughly checked all applications, systems, processes and services.

PAS 99 is a framework for integrating management systems built on different management systems standards (MSS). It specifies requirements for streamlining and managing MSSs, allowing for improved business focus, a more universal approach to risk mitigation and improved operational efficiency.

“Ribose is dedicated to providing our users with the highest standards of service. Achieving PAS 99 certifies that our management systems are tightly integrated – including our highly dynamic information security management system, which has been awarded numerous security certifications such as ISO 27001, CSA STAR and CDSA CPS,” explained Ronald Tse, founder of Ribose. “We believe the holistic approach is key to effective collaboration, and we’ve taken that to heart in integrating our management systems – which will augment service for all users.”

Emmanuel Herve, Managing Director of BSI Hong Kong, stated: “By achieving PAS 99 certification for its IMS, Ribose has again demonstrated its commitment to industry-leading corporate governance. The certified efficiency of its management systems allows Ribose to focus its resources on enhancing its platform, and delivering effective solutions to users.”
