IKEv2 VPN Protocol added on all CactusVPN servers
If you already are a customer of CactusVPN, or you are just thinking of starting using our services, it’s important to know that we have introduced one of the best and most modern VPN protocols: the IKEv2 VPN Protocol.
CactusVPN wants to make sure that your internet experience isn’t hindered by any inconvenience of any kind and this is why we have just added support for this type of VPN protocol: IKEv2.
All the servers of CactusVPN have been updated and configured to run on this protocol.
What is an IKEv2 VPN protocol?
IKEv2 paired with IPSec is a VPN protocol created by Microsoft in partnership with Cisco that will help you get a great experience online without having to worry about your safety at all.
IKEv2 VPN Protocol Advantages
If you are asking yourself how the IKEv2 protocol and the support offered by CactusVPN will help you then here are a few of the advantages of using them:
- IKEv2 works on all major mobile devices, including those that are usually ignored like Blackberry
- It offers state-of-the-art protection for users
- It works in the background, faster than most other VPN protocols
- It is more stable and when used together with Microsoft’s VPN Connect it will automatically reconnect to your VPN even if you temporarily lose your internet connection
While there are a lot of great VPN protocols that can help you with your issues, the IKEv2 stands out because it offers some things that the others don’t.
The best example for this is the fact that IKEv2 used together with Microsoft’s VPN Connect has the ability to re-establish a VPN connection after you have lost your internet connection. This means that if you pass an area without signal or switch between mobile data and Wi-Fi then your connection will be automatically reconnected once you have internet.
Their use of a MOBIKE protocol (Mobility and Multihoming) allows the IKEv2 to work flawlessly even when you change networks and this feature makes this VPN protocol the best option for mobile devices that go from data to Wi-Fi and then to hotspots.
Another great advantage of IKEv2 is that it works across a great variety of platforms, including Blackberry devices on which other such protocols do not work. It is also better in terms of security, speed and stability than other types of VPN protocols.

How to set up IKEv2 VPN Protocol?
If you are an iPhone or iPad user, you can set up the CactusVPN iOS app that uses the IKEv2 protocol to connect to VPN.
All other CactusVPN customers at the moment only have the option to connect to the IKEv2 protocol manually. This is a bit tricky if you have never done it before.
Luckily for you, CactusVPN offers extensive tutorials on how to set the IKEv2 protocol so that it will work perfectly and offer you the security, speed, and stability that you need.
We are happy to provide the best services for our customers, and we think the introduction of the IKEv2 VPN protocol on all our servers is a great addition to our offerings. Make sure to stay informed about all the advantages and disadvantages of this VPN protocol and to choose it if you feel that is suits your needs.
