    The Cybersecurity Law has very detailed requirements in this area. For many businesses, a major concern would be Real Identity Verification.

Real Identity Verification is an ID authentication solution that leverages the Alibaba Cloud Facial Recognition and Big Data risk management model to detect ID fraud. And it’s also important that you leverage cyber security products like WAF, Server Guard, and TDS to protect personal information from being hacked.

Constant automated moderation responses in less than 0.1 second with an accuracy rate of up to 95% or higher.
