Ribose wins Six Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie® Awards at 2018 International Business Awards®

Recognized for Wide-Ranging Asymmetric Security Solutions and Metanorma Publishing Technology


[22 August 2018, Hong Kong] – Ribose has won four Gold Stevie Awards for “Best New Semantic Technology Platform, Tools and Applications”, “Best New International Data Protection Solution”, “Best New Collaboration/Social Networking Solution” and “Best New Scholarly Publishing Information Solution” categories, as well as a Silver Stevie for “Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year - Up to 100 Employees” and a Bronze Stevie for “Technical Innovation of the Year - At Organizations With Up to 100 Employees” at The 15thAnnual International Business Awards.


The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program, where all individuals and organizations worldwide are eligible to submit nominations. The 2018 IBAs received more than 3,900 entries from 74 nations and territories, from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry.


Ribose provides asymmetric security solutions and technologies that empower productivity in security-sensitive environments. 


Its focus on cybersecurity has been recognized for a number of achievements, including its one-of-a-kind geolocation services for organizations with data sovereignty concerns, as well as extended “Zero-Knowledge Collaboration” technology featuring enhanced elliptic-curve cryptography.


Other Ribose innovations include the “Engyon” secure document scheme that allows data elements to be individually encrypted and digitally-signed while supporting hierarchical security levels. The result is a standalone, “blockchain in a file” secure document that can be transmitted through traditional channels like email.


Ribose also won recognition for conceiving and developing “Metanorma” – a standard for standards documents – for use by international standardization bodies such as CalConnect and ISO to achieve an end-to-end, author-to-print workflow.


Ribose founder Ronald Tse commented, “Ribose is delighted to receive such high recognition in the 15thAnnual International Business Awards, winning four Gold Stevie Awards for ‘Best New Product or Service of the Year’ – as well as a Silver Stevie Award for ‘Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year’ and a Bronze Stevie Award for ‘Technical Innovation of the Year’. Winning awards in these highly competitive categories stands as solid testament to our commitment to asymmetric security solutions and standard advancement.”


He continued, “I’d like to congratulate all 2018 IBA winners and nominees for sharing their success stories from around the world. It’s always been a source of pride for our team at Ribose to be recognized amongst some of the leading names in international business; we are both humbled and flattered by this year’s results.”


Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 270 executives worldwide who participated on 12 juries.


Judges commended Ribose for creating a “scalable, socio-centric, highly productive and trusted product with top notch security certified by highly qualified and recognized organizations.” They also noted Ribose’s “innovation on multiple fronts with Engyon secure document technology, data sovereignty and extended cloud security.” 


Judges praised Engyon’s use of blockchain-like technology to create secure, sharable documents – with one commenting, “Using blockchain to secure collaboration is brilliant!” and another saying “The idea of a standalone, but secure, document that can be transmitted through traditional channels such as email is simply outstanding.”


This year’s IBA judges also lauded Ribose’s development of Metanorma as a “revolutionary concept”, noting that, “Setting standards for standardization is a very important requirement. This is a great initiative.” Another judge remarked, “To anyone who has to administrate such standards, this [Metanorma] will seem like a godsend.”


“This year’s Stevie Award winners are the most distinguished group of winners we’ve had yet,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “Ribose should be especially proud of their achievement, as we raised the minimum scoring requirements for the 2018 IBAs in light of an increasingly impressive pool of global nominations. Taking home six Stevie® Awards this year is solid proof that Ribose stands at the forefront of cyber security and international standards.”

Ribose named Best New Collaboration Service and Most Innovative Company in Asia, Australia and New Zealand by 2015 International Business Awards

Company wins two Gold Stevie® Awards in world’s premier business awards program

Hong Kong – 13 August 2015 – Ribose was named winner of two Gold Stevie® Awards in the “Best New Product or Service of the Year – Software Collaboration/Social Networking Solution” and “Most Innovative Company of the Year in Asia, Australia and New Zealand” categories in The 12th Annual International Business Awards today.

The International Business Awards are the world’s premier business awards program. All individuals and organizations worldwide – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small – are eligible to submit nominations. The 2015 IBAs received entries from more than 60 nations and territories. More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories.

The Ribose cloud collaboration 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. Capturing the attention of the technology and business worlds, Ribose has been featured in Fortune and TechTarget.

Accessible anywhere, offering enterprise-level service dependability, and complying with international governance standards – the Ribose platform gives users peace of mind to focus on their tasks at hand. Advocating a ‘highest-bar’ approach to cloud security, Ribose provides a higher level of security for all users by meeting the most stringent specified requirements worldwide.

According to Ribose founder Ronald Tse, “Ribose is delighted to have won not only one, but two Gold Stevie Awards in the hotly contested ‘Best New Product or Service of the Year’ and ‘Most Innovative Company of the Year in Asia, Australia and New Zealand’ categories at this year’s International Business Awards. These awards stand as testament to our mission of providing world-class collaboration capability to make working together easy and fun – while protecting users’ data with the highest, internationally certified levels of security.”

He continued, “We would like to thank the organizers for putting this year’s awards together, and are humbled by the expert judges’ recognition of our work – especially considering the impressive list of nominees from around the globe. On behalf of our team at Ribose, we congratulate all of this year’s award winners and nominees. It is an honor to be included amongst such distinguished company.”

Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 200 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from May through early August.

IBA Judges commended the Ribose platform for democratizing secure collaboration, by providing a “technically robust offering” with “collaboration tools in a secured setting”, allowing an unprecedented flexibility to use the “open platform” in both “professional working and fun” settings through a "very easy to use and attractive interface design" – as winning factors in naming Ribose’s platform the Best New Product or Service of the Year in the Software Collaboration/Social-Network Solution category. Ribose’s security focus was best summarized by a judge who noted: “Most existing cloud collaboration software simply does not offer the necessary security levels to protect mission-critical, commercially sensitive projects.”

In naming Ribose the Most Innovative Company of the Year in Asia, Australia and New Zealand, IBA Judges lauded the company’s “great commitment and great team, deploying the technology to the benefit of both the company and the community,” “professional management” and “excellent performance”, as well as its “impressive accomplishment in achieving multiple certifications”, providing users with “all the benefits of an enterprise-class collaboration platform, with none of the associated infrastructure and costs.”
