The Cayman Islands are well known for offshore web hosing and other types of ‘offshore’ accounts. The laws and regulations there are very open, and privacy from government or private interference in your personal affairs is strictly prohibited (and upheld). There are plenty of reasons to get an IP address from The Cayman Islands.
Accessing local websites is easy when you are in the area, however this is much more difficult if you are in another part of the world. Typically, a significant proportion of local sites are restricted to local viewing through the use of IP addresses to pinpoint where in the world the user is.

These types of firewalls can be easily bypassed by using a VPN to get an IP address from the desired part of the world. It may be the website of your offshore bank account, your hosting service, or other local business
Using a VPN to get an IP address from The Cayman Islands can make a person from anywhere in the world appear like they are accessing the internet from the Cayman Islands. It also hides your real IP address, meaning that all the information transferred between you, the VPN server, and the website or program you’re accessing/running is completely private.
This is why they’re sometimes called “private VPN” services or “anonymous VPN” service. If privacy is your goal, a VPN is the way to go, no matter whether you’re using an IP from The Cayman Islands or another country.
There is nothing illegal about using a VPN to get an IP address from the Cayman Islands, or from anywhere in the world. VPNs are well known and widely used methods of browsing the internet, as they allow for high security and privacy.
In fact, many businesses and websites use them to ensure the security of their data. VPNs are also a popular way to prevent ‘hacking’ or ‘side jacking’ while connected to public Wifi.
Even though The Cayman Islands is such a popular place for private accounts of this nature, there are actually very few VPN services that offer IP addresses from this country. IAPS Security Store has hundreds of IP locations, some of which are in The Cayman Islands.
For basic security, 128 bit encryption you can use PPTP VPN, or for an upgrade, L2TP VPN. Both are available in the PPTP/L2TP section of IAPS Security Store. You can use OpenVPN on Mac, Linux, Windows, iOS, and Android systems. Unfortunately, the super secure OpenVPN tunnel is currently not available here.
However, there are SSTP VPN servers in The Cayman Islands, which feature high grade encryption and security features from Microsoft. SSTP VPN can be used on Windows Vista and Windows 7 (and probably soon to be Windows 8).
