The Trusted Partner Network (TPN)is owned and managed by the Motion Picture Association (MPA) a leader in third-party entertainment industry assessments. The TPN's goal is to help companies to ensure content security, prevent leaks, breaches, and hacks of movies and TV shows before they are released, by creating a single, central global directory of “trusted partner” vendors.
TPN is used to establish whether a service provider appropriately uses industry-standard practices. In particular, this is done through an auditing process whereby a certified evaluator ensures client content security through a comprehensive assessment of the relevant facilities, personnel, and work practices of the service provider. Alibaba Cloud is the first public cloud service provider to obtain the TPN certification globally.
