Company Recognized for Sales in New International Markets
June 29, 2012
FAIRMONT, WV - Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin
presented the Governor’s Commendation for International Market Entry to Backbone
Security along with representatives of 49 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 2011.
Gov. Tomblin joined the West Virginia Export Council and the West Virginia Development
Office on June 28 to commend the West Virginia companies.
“Our export performance continues to be a source of pride for our state and strength
in our economy,” said Gov. Tomblin. “International trade and investment create and
retain jobs in West Virginia. In 2011, West Virginia exports increased 39.5 percent,
the highest export growth rate of any state in the nation. I thank our exporting
companies for their efforts and congratulate them on their success.”
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 2011.
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 Estonia, Israel, Japan, and Norway.

in 2011,” said Bart G. Guerreri, Founder, Chairman, and CEO of Backbone Security.
