The firm Puts Netflix CEO Reed Hastings on Notice About Security Risks & VPN Ban21.3.2018 08:00Pressemelding

ATLANTA and SAN FRANCISCO, March 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CEO, Michael Gargiulo, is taking the fight to Netflix, Inc. CEO, Reed Hastings, on behalf of 120 million Netflix subscribers worldwide who cannot securely access the service with a Virtual Private Network (VPN). "I wrote this letter because Netflix subscribers are unable to securely connect to the platform they're paying to access," explains Gargiulo. "This comes after Netflix decided to ban VPN connectivity to its platform altogether in 2016, citing copyright concerns from content providers like Sony Corporation, 21st Century Fox, Inc. and NBCUniversal, Inc." Currently, the VPN ban at Netflix forces users to choose between their online security and entertainment. With a large portion of customers connecting via public WiFi-including any of the estimated 500 million hotpots found in coffee shops, airports and hotels worldwide-the liability is omnipresent. "This is a huge problem for Netflix that is coming to a head,"
