VFT Solutions Inc


VFT Solutions Inc. is the brainchild of a group with years of experience in the anti-piracy industry. The founders built their careers on the identification and legal enforcement of anti-piracy statutes against identified pirates, helping companies preserve their brand equity and protect their assets. Through their work, they recognized that as technology evolved, so did piracy methods, making all traditional attempts to combat piracy ineffective. So, they set out to create a better system. The VFT method and solution was created to identify the pirate and then convert them to a paying customer. This approach attacks piracy from the ground up and provides an opportunity for businesses to grow their customer base, rather than lose customers as a result of piracy.
