HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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.

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 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. This year, the Stevie Awards received over 3,700 entries lauding stories of success and achievement around the world. 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.
