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

HONG KONG–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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 15th

Annual 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 15th Annual 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.”
