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.”

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.”

“We congratulate Ribose on winning Two Gold Stevie Awards in the 12th Annual International Business Awards.

Out of all these world-class entries, the fact that our judges selected Ribose for two Gold Stevie Awards stands as testament to the company’s innovation and reputation for excellence,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
