VPN measures defended

CHINESE authorities yesterday defended their management measures on virtual private networks, saying the measures will have no negative impact on law abiding businesses and individuals.

All businesses operating within China need to properly register with the authorities and every business with a website needs to obtain an Internet Content Provider license and display it at the bottom on their website.

“Our measures aim to better regulate the behavior of China’s VPN market and they will only target unregistered businesses and individuals providing VPN services for cross-border use,” Zhang Feng, chief engineer of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said at a press conference.

Authorities are aware that some foreign trade companies and transnational companies need to use a VPN for office work and they are allowed to have access to VPN service via registered providers, said Zhang.

Zhang noted that authorities have set different standards for various services including big data and cloud computing.
