Ribose has become the world's first cloud service provider (CSP) to achieve Singapore's Multi-Tier Cloud Security (MTCS) certification.

The MTCS was initiated by the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) and developed under the Information Technology Standards Committee (ITSC). It is a Singapore Standard (SS 584:2013) that specifies stringent security and operational requirements for CSPs to encourage adoption of sound risk management and security practices.

The certification specifies three tiers of security certification, with level three being the highest.

Ribose's level one MTCS certification was awarded after thorough evaluation by BSI (British Standards Institution), a participating Certification Body for the MTCS standard.

IDA Assistant Chief Executive Khoong Hock Yun said, “Cloud computing is a key enabler for Singapore's drive to become a Smart Nation. Security of the cloud is a critical concern answered by the Multi-Tier Cloud Security standard. We are heartened that global industry players have taken a keen interest in it and are signing on to adopt the measures.”

According to Ribose founder Ronald Tse, "By achieving MTCS certification, Ribose has reached another milestone in our commitment to data security and protection. This latest achievement further enhances our comprehensive portfolio of security certifications, giving users the peace of mind to collaborate online with confidence using the Ribose platform.”
