HONG KONG--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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 ISO 14001:2015 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.”
