Easy as Opening a Web Browser
The Barracuda SSL VPN makes it easy for remote users to access internal applications and files. Unlike traditional VPN technologies, the Barracuda SSL VPN does not require any additional client software or complicated settings. Logging in from home or the road requires only a web browser and Internet connection. Upon login, users are presented with a portal of internal web applications or file shares. More advanced applications like Remote Desktop Services or Citrix XenApp are available to users running Java.
Administrators have complete control over user access with the option of further securing resources with secondary authentication. Possibilities include sending one-time passcodes to mobile phones (including Google Authenticator), prompting with security questions, or integrating with advanced authentication systems like hardware tokens, RADIUS, and other additional security methods. Risk Based Authentication allows the use of extra authentication for high risk applications.
Comfort in a secure network
The Barracuda SSL VPN provides extra security layers, including the ability to reverse-proxy Exchange ActiveSync traffic to keep Windows servers safely inside the network perimeter. Integrated antivirus protection secures file uploads to keep malware out of the network. Built on a hardened platform, the Barracuda SSL VPN is the ideal replacement for traditional software-based remote access gateways.
Powerful, Complete Solution
Installed in a matter of minutes, the Barracuda SSL VPN enables complete control over the resources designated for external access, such as internal Web applications, file systems and other applications. From any Web browser, users connect to internal Web sites through a built-in reverse proxy for access to network file shares. Richer support for SSL tunneling is enabled through the Barracuda SSL VPN Agent, a lightweight Java client that supports common remote applications, including Remote Desktop, VNC, NX, SSH and Telnet.
For complete network layer access, the Barracuda SSL VPN includes the Barracuda Network Connector, an installable VPN client for TCP or UDP connectivity. With the Barracuda Network Connector, users gain SSL access to legacy client/server application during a VPN session.
With robust security and auditing features, administrators define custom policies to govern resource access to particular users or groups while tracking user activity. For added security, files uploaded during a VPN session to network file shares or internal Web sites are scanned for viruses and other malware to prevent infections of critical network resources.
Best-of-Breed Access Control
Remote access by nature can be risky exposing network resources across the Internet. However the Barracuda SSL VPN mitigates these risks by tightly controlling user access through a full suite of authentication mechanisms and support for third-party authentication, such as Active Directory or LDAP. Administrators have the option to layering security by enforcing the use of PIN numbers, hardware tokens, client certificates and other forms of secure authentication on top of AD or LDAP.
By restricting usage to internal resources upon presenting the correct credentials and token code, an organization securely manages external access to network resources. The policy-based access control framework integrates into existing AD or LDAP schema to grant users rights and permissions. For added granularity, administrators have the option of setting policy to set and limit network resources by AD or LDAP rights. Once access is granted, the administrator monitors resource access from VPN clients by the use of the auditing feature.
Easy-to-use, secure network access for business travelers, remote workers, and mobile users
Your army of road warriors and remote workers require a quick, flexible, reliable and completely secure way to connect to your internal enterprise applications, information and network resources. They want to do this from anywhere in the world, at any time and from any suitable device. The Barracuda SSL VPN provides the security and connectivity to deliver this access, via a web browser or virtually any mobile device.
