Easy-to-use, secure network access for business travelers, remote workers, and mobile users. Today’s road warriors and remote workers require a quick, flexible, reliable, and completely secure way to connect to internal business applications, information, and network resources. They want to do this from anywhere in the world, at any time, from any suitable device. The Barracuda SSL VPN provides the security and connectivity to deliver this access, via a web browser or mobile device. Awards speak for themselves. Discover why businesses trust Barracuda. 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, prompting with security questions, or integrating with advanced authentication systems like hardware tokens, RADIUS, and other additional security methods. 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.
Barracuda SSL VPN Clientless Remote Access
Unlike traditional IPsec-based VPNs that require client software installed on remote machines, the Barracuda SSL VPN provides secure remote access to network resources from any web browser. This removes the overhead of installing and maintaining clients and permits secure access from any operating system that can support a standard web browser. SSL technology also eliminates some of the deployment issues around IPsec VPN technology like IP address conflicts, NAT traversal, and DNS issues. Some features require the use of Java plugin for clientless access.
Remote users are required to properly identify themselves before obtaining entry to the network to prevent unauthorized access. The Barracuda SSL VPN can be configured to enforce a combination of authentication schemes including Active Directory passwords, hardware tokens, client certificates, and PIN numbers. Moreover, the Barracuda SSL VPN supports RSA SecurID, VASCO, Safeword, and CryptoCard authentication servers through RADIUS integration for access using a one-time password token. This security ensures that accessing the Barracuda SSL VPN from any web browser is backed by the protection of a strong authentication policy that allows only authorized users to enter the network.
Google Authenticator offers an easy way to use time-based, single-use passwords (TOPT) using Google infrastructure and mobile apps. The authentication module can be used by itself or in combination with other authentication modules for multi-factor authentication. A new verification code is automatically generated every 30 seconds. The official Google Authenticator app is available for Android, iOS and Blackberry (version 6 or lower) devices. Third-party apps are available for almost all other mobile operating systems. This feature works on both the desktop and mobile portals.
