HM VPN – For Business Use Only

For VPN Users

Effective Now

As the amount of HM employees working from home has increased, so has the amount of streaming traffic over the VPN. In the last two weeks, our VPN server has seen an uptick in employees streaming Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Hulu to name a few.


This puts HM at risk for cyberattacks, and the following streaming sites are now blocked from VPN:

  • Amazon Prime Video

  • Crunchyroll

  • Disney Plus

  • HBO Now

  • Hulu

  • Netflix

  • Sling TV

  • YouTube TV

As a reminder, VPN is only for business use. Do not use VPN to stream any online service.
