About CactusVPN

CactusVPN was founded in late 2011 as a small business venture by three friends, all of whom had extensive backgrounds in ecommerce. The company’s initial vision for CactusVPN was similar to a family-run restaurant, where staff and clients knew each other and received personalised service.

By 2013, CactusVPN experienced unprecedented growth. In response, the company decided to expand its team and hire new staff to maintain the quality of service that its customers had come to expect. Despite its growth, CactusVPN has maintained its original family business model. The company has even turned down external offers to buy it outright or in part, believing that its tight-knit community built on passion rather than financial gain is what will drive it to become among the most trusted VPN providers on the internet today.
