Gov Earl Ray TomblinFAIRMONT, W.Va. /eNewsChannels/ — Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin presented the Governor’s Commendation for International Market Entry to Backbone Security along with representatives of 48 other West Virginia businesses assembled at the State Capitol in Charleston yesterday. The award honors companies that have successfully exported to a new country in the past year.

Gov. Tomblin joined the West Virginia Export Council and the West Virginia Development Office on June 22 to commend the West Virginia companies.

“West Virginia businesses are competing in today’s marketplace, whether it is around the corner or around the world,” said Gov. Tomblin. “Our businesses, big and small, are succeeding in expanding their sales horizons to new markets, creating and retaining jobs here at home.”

This award is based on the tradition of displaying the first dollar a business earns. The Governor’s Commendation for International Market Entry frames currency from each new country to which the recipient business began exporting in 2010.

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 Malaysia, Russia, and the United Kingdom.
