The launch comes amid worries of manufacturers over both online and offline entwined security risks as the internet connects production links with the external network and largely increases efficiency. 

“With four years of development, the platform has been geared to top international standard in terms of core technologies, including testing capacity, testing efficiency and accuracy. In this way, it breaks the long-term monopoly of the United States and Israel in this field.”, according to Dr. Li Lian, a researcher at the Institute of Computing Technology of the Chinese Academy of Science, and CEO and founder of Ningbo Zhongketianqi Information and Technology Co. Ltd.
