Briefly describe this entry's communications objectives and how it has met those objectives (up to 200 words):

Ribose is the secure sharing app that is created for achieving productivity.

We believe privacy and security form the foundation of liberty, and our goal is to empower individuals and organizations alike to freely communicate and achieve productivity for the greater good.

Security is critical in protecting the fruits of productivity, and our zero-knowledge collaboration technology enables the holy grail of secure productivity: sharing with those, and only those you want, completely shielded against insider and hacker threats via algorithmic access control. We are the world’s only cloud service provider (CSP) triple-assured by the Cloud Security Alliance, and the only CSP to receive the Kitemark for Secure Digital Transactions, the authoritative application security recognition from BSI.

Developed to allow natural work interaction across geographies and time zones, Ribose is based on an open, social model that allows interactions to develop as they naturally occur, bringing people together through common missions, interests and activities, while arranging collaborative data naturally by topic or activity.

Ribose and its mobile applications democratize collaborative productivity technology – previously only affordable to large enterprises and government organizations – by putting the means to innovate into the hands of all users.

Provide the applicable creative and production credits for this entry:

The Ribose mobile app is originally designed by the late Hillman Curtis and Pentagram partner Paula Scher, and created by Ribose team as an integral part of the Ribose secure sharing platform.

Backed by experienced advisors from Citigroup, JP Morgan and Sun Microsystems, Ribose caters to the needs of highly regulated industries such as finance and healthcare. The latest version of the platform supports data geolocation – allowing organizations to comply with data sovereignty requirements while collaborating effectively transparently. Simply by selecting a specific region when creating a workspace, all data, metadata and processing will only be performed within that region.

Ribose is the world’s only cloud service provider triple-assured by the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA): STAR Attestation, STAR Certification and C-STAR Assessment. The platform and its mobile applications meet and exceed the highest government security standards, including Singapore's MTCS at Level 3 and the UK's CESG CHECK; and it is the only collaboration platform certified to ISO/IEC 27017 (cloud security) and ISO/IEC 27018 (cloud privacy).

Moreover, Ribose is the world’s only collaboration platform to receive the BSI Kitemark for Secure Digital Transactions, a testament to our proven application security that exceeds banking-grade security requirements.

This year, Ribose won the CSA APAC Security Innovation of the Year award, and was also named a Red Herring 100 Global company. Our security is constantly assessed by 75 man-days of CSA audits annually, with reliability monitored by 13 annual audits conducted by BSI.

Delivering peace of mind supported by world-class management systems, Ribose’s management systems are certified to ISO 9001 for quality management, ISO 22301 for business continuity management, and ISO/IEC 20000-1 for service management.

Already in use by over 80 organizations (including Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), the industry body for cloud security; and British Standards Institution (BSI), the UK Government's National Standards Body), Ribose provides the full benefits of modern collaboration technology – backed by world-class security and privacy certified to the highest international standards.
