Recently the company has launched new servers in the Christmas Islands, Laos, Western Sahara.
IAPS has server in so many locations in fact after speaking with the CEO we learned that they were forced to close down their servers in North Korea and Cuba. We could understand North Korea but Cuba ? Please give us a break!
IAPS Security is also a central registrar through the RIPE NCC – see here -> http://www.ripe.net/lir-services/ncc and they are able to get as many ip and ranges as they have a valid use for. That number currently stands at 17,000

IAPS Security Errors
With the level of technical support offered by IAPS Security, there should be no difficulties with errors. The company has a blog that keeps customers updated as to the newest offerings and what they entail.
IAPS Security Conclusion
IAPS Security offers a huge number of client nations where servers are available. They also offer some of the strongest encryption available online, which makes them a good choice for those who are in restrictive nations that do not allow full, unfettered use of the Internet. The company targets many of its offerings at business users, but regular people will also find this service to be valuable.
IAPS Security does have higher prices that most of the competition and may not be as user friendly as some might desire. While their sophisticated offerings have much to boast, users who just want an easy way to surf the Internet without being spied upon and without having to deal with their ISP throttling their traffic will likely find that what IAPS Security might be too much.
