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

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."
