Mozilla Prism startup program

What is this and why is it in my start up tabs?
I read this:
https://mozillalabs.com/en-US/prism/

But I still don't understand fully. Can I uncheck this? It says the project is inactive anyway.

WTF, I went to where the "Command" address points to, and it is OpenVPN. Is OpenVPN operated by Mozilla? I don't get it.
And why is it called prism.. that's just creepy.

1. Google is your friend, so just use it, or another search engine to look up "OpenVPN." As previously instructed, simply delete Prism and move on.

2. There is nothing whatsoever creepy about the name "Prism," which is just a name like any other name for software.

I have been Googling this whole time. I do acknowledge that I have OpenVPN, but I don't understand why it's labeled as "Prism" in my startup tab in msconfig and why the manufacturer is "Mozilla Foundation"
