China Electronics Corporation (CEC), the largest state-owned IT company in China, has become an important pillar of national information security.

Rui Xiaowu, chairman and secretary of the CEC's party leadership group, said the company had been operating the "network security systems project" since 2011. It is based on national strategic needs, in order to service key industries and guarantee the nation's important information systems and critical basic networks are secure.

The state-owned conglomerate has constituted an independent and controllable information security protection system, which can find, prevent and replace potential risks and attacks. Rui says it has also made a breakthrough in core technologies which cover computer, internet, industrial control and security service, reaching the international advanced level.

Established in 1989, CEC administrates a constellation of IT companies in China. It controls 61 second-level subsidiaries, including 13 listed holding companies. It also has more than 70,000 employees.

The company provides design, development, manufacturing, sales and services in semiconductor and electronics components, computer and core computer parts, software and system integration, telecommunication and consumer electronics.

It also engages in e-commerce, logistics and information service, electronic engineering design and contracts.
