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 contributes implementations of Chinese cryptographic algorithms to OpenSSL

Enables compliant usage of OpenSSL toolkit within China


[September 13, 2018, Hong Kong, Newark DE] – Ribose has contributed the SM2, SM3 and SM4 Chinese cryptographic algorithms to the OpenSSL cryptographic library, which are now available for general use as part of OpenSSL’s version 1.1.1 release.


SM2, SM3, SM4 are “commercial cryptography” algorithms, mandated by the State Cryptographic Administration to be used within China, in accordance with the “Regulation on the Administration of Commercial Cryptography” issued by the State Council of the PRC in 1999. The algorithms are widely applied in technologies used within China to enable legal usage of cryptography, including public key infrastructure (PKI), identification and banking cards, Trusted Platform Module, and the OpenPGP and Transport Layer Security protocols.


SM2 is an elliptic curve cryptographic system (ECC) that provides algorithms for public-key encryption, digital signatures, key agreement, and also parameters for the SM2-specific elliptic curve. SM2 was first published in 2010, and standardized as Chinese cryptographic standard GM/T 0003 and GB/T 32918 (5 parts).


SM3 is a cryptographic hash algorithm designed by Prof. Xiaoyun Wang as a counterpart to the NIST SHA-256 algorithm with several strengthening features. SM3 was first published in 2010, and standardized as Chinese cryptographic standard GM/T 0004 and GB/T 32905.


SM4 is a symmetric encryption algorithm designed for data encryption. The Chinese counterpart to AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), it is a 128-bit blockcipher designed for speed and suitability for encryption on low-powered devices. Designed by Prof. Shu-Wang Lu, it was standardized as Chinese cryptographic standard GM/T 0002 and GB/T 32907.


Matt Caswell of OpenSSL said, “The OpenSSL project develops and disseminates open and freely available technology to enable people worldwide to protect their data and communication. By supporting the Chinese cryptographic standards (SM2, SM3 and SM4) we hope to enable

broader usage of OpenSSL within China for those industries adopting these national algorithms. We sincerely thank Ribose for their contributions to the OpenSSL project.”


According to Ribose founder Ronald Tse, “Ribose is a staunch supporter of open-source and allowing people to secure their own data – this contribution enables people and organizations operating in China to legally utilize the market-leading cryptographic library, OpenSSL, to protect their information. We appreciate the opportunity to collaborate with the OpenSSL team and commend them for supporting cryptography usage worldwide.”

Ribose becomes first organization in Asia to achieve ISO 45001 certification

Certified to newest international standard for health and safety management


[August 9, 2018, HONG KONG & LONDON] Secure cloud provider Ribose has become the first organization in Asia and one of the first organizations in the world to achieve ISO 45001:2018 certification by BSI.


ISO 45001:2018 is the newly released international occupational health and safety management system standard. It is the successor to OHSAS 18001, published 19 years ago.


Ribose’s certification was awarded by BSI (British Standards Institution), one of the first wave of certification bodies to be awarded global accreditation by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB) for ISO 45001:2018. BSI initially issued a “confirmation of compliance” letter confirming Ribose’s compliance with ISO 45001 on 30 March 2018.


Previously, Ribose operated an OHSAS 18001 compliant management system, which has now been upgraded to comply with ISO 45001.


ISO 45001 differs from OHSAS 18001 in adopting ISO’s High-Level Structure (HLS) management system framework, described in Annex SL. Annex SL, which is also used by other management systems including ISO 9001 and ISO/IEC 27001, aligns management systems processes and therefore simplifies integration. ISO 45001 also covers a wider scope than OHSAS 18001, with stakeholders including all internal or external parties who are directly or indirectly affected by the organization’s health and safety management issues.


According to Enoch Lee, General Manager of Hong Kong for BSI, “BSI has always been a proponent of health and safety management, having established the original BS OHSAS 18001 standard. Wellness and safety considerations apply to all industries, including office-based working environments. As the first organization in Asia to achieve ISO 45001 certification, Ribose is clearly demonstrating its commitment to maintaining the highest international standards of health and safety.”


Ronald Tse, Founder of Ribose, commented, “At Ribose, our staff are the core of our company, and their wellbeing is our top priority. Achieving ISO 45001 certification stands as testament that our health and safety practices meet international best practices, and helps to ensure the wellbeing of our staff, partners and customers.”

Ribose Achieves World's First NIST Cybersecurity Framework Certification by BSI

Verified compliance to NIST Cybersecurity Framework at Tier 4 (Adaptive)


[August 8, 2018, HONG KONG] Ribose has become the world's first organization to certify to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (Tier 4) by BSI.


The National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) was mandated by U.S. Executive Order (EO) 13636, and was designed to protect critical infrastructure and vital industries from cyberattacks. It also allows organizations to select a “Tier” based on organizational practices – from Tier 1 (Partial) to Tier 4 (Adaptive) – indicating a progressive approach from informal and reactive, to agile and risk-driven.


BSI was part of the team of experts that worked with NIST to develop the CSF, and is the first certification body to offer certification to the CSF. The program validates processes and evidence corresponding to the chosen tier level, and is integrated with ISO/IEC 27001, which comprehensively validates information security and risk management practices.


John DiMaria, Global Product Champion for Information Security and Business Continuity for BSI, said, “BSI has created the world’s first certification on the NIST Cybersecurity Framework. The unique tiered concept combines solid information security principles with application flexibility, which will be valued by organizations worldwide. We congratulate Ribose on being the first organization to receive our NIST CSF certification at Tier 4, and commend its long-standing commitment to international harmonization of cybersecurity providing the highest levels of data protection.”


Enoch Lee, General Manager of Hong Kong for BSI, added, “BSI has long been recognized as a pioneer in information security management. The new NIST Cybersecurity Framework certification program is a key component of our efforts to maintain this leadership position.”


According to Ronald Tse, founder of Ribose, “Achieving NIST CSF certification at Tier 4 reaffirms our unwavering commitment to protecting our customers’ data based on verifiable cybersecurity. Our approach builds upon a solid security foundation that includes the selective Kitemark for Secure Digital Transactions certification, as well as cloud security and privacy certification through ISO/IEC 27017 and ISO/IEC 27018.”
