Governor's Commendation for International Market Entry

Governor's Commendation for International Market Entry

Since 2006 we have exported our software to 33 countries around the world.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin presented the Governor’s Commendation for International Market Entry award to Backbone Security along with representatives of 51 other West Virginia businesses assembled at the State Capitol yesterday. The award honors companies that have successfully exported to a new country during calendar year 2012.

Gov. Tomblin joined the West Virginia Export Council and the West Virginia Development Office on June 6 to commend the West Virginia companies.

"In 2012, our state's exports reached a record high of $11.3 billion," Gov. Tomblin said. "Expanding into new markets around the world has provided our businesses an opportunity to demonstrate their ability to successfully compete in the global marketplace. And I'm pleased to have this opportunity to honor them for their success."

The Governor's Commendation for International Market Entry award is a framed piece of currency from each new country to which the recipient business began exporting in 2012. The presentation is based on the tradition of displaying the first dollar a business earns.

Backbone was recognized for exporting their state-of-the-art digital steganography detection and hidden information extraction products developed in their Steganography Analysis and Research Center (SARC) to Azerbaijan.

“We are honored to be recognized by Gov. Tomblin for our exports to new markets in 2012,” said Bart G. Guerreri, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Backbone Security. “Since 2006 we have exported our software to 33 countries around the world. Export sales have been a major part of our revenues and we expect continued growth in export revenue as we go forward.”
