DescriptionWith today’s mobile and remote workforce, the focus is on employee productivity rather than location. Work is being done anytime and anywhere—at home, in the coffee shop, on a train. Giving workers the freedom to do their work outside the office, without fixed hours, from their BYOD is a growing trend. At the same time the IT department needs to roll out these connectivity options across multiple platforms, prevent unauthorized access, enforce access policies, provide multi-factor authentication and ensure always on availability with fewer resources, but on a global level.
The Advanced Remote Access subscription for Barracuda CloudGen Firewall extends the basic VPN connectivity provided with every device to enable all the above—at a fraction of the price point of dedicated solutions - in the most flexible and convenient way, for the end user and the administrator.
Every Barracuda CloudGen Firewall supports an unlimited number of VPN clients at no extra cost. Barracuda’s Network Access VPN client provides a sophisticated VPN client for Windows, macOS, and Linux that provides richer performance and functionality than standard IPsec client software.
Benefits include quick restoration of VPN tunnels, “Always On” VPN connections for PCs, redundant VPN gateway support, selective routing of network traffic through the VPN tunnel, and optimal VPN-gateway detection based on location. The Barracuda Network Access Client, when used with a Barracuda CloudGen Firewall, provides centrally managed Network Access Control (NAC) and an advanced personal firewall. This enforces client health and security policies for remote users connecting to the corporate network. For remote workers and road warriors requiring access to company or cloud-based resources CudaLaunch is the ideal solution. CudaLaunch is a simple-to-use remote connectivity application specifically designed to securely extend the company network to BYOD and mobile devices.
The app is available for Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android and is available for download from the respective app stores. End users can install the app without elevated privileges on the device. CudaLaunch looks and feels the same on every platform and provides fast, Java-independent access to commonly used applications in the company network – regardless if hosted on-premises or in the cloud. CudaLaunch’ zero-touch provisioning and administration features drastically reduce support and administration costs for rapidly changing mobile and BYOD devices. For ad-hoc access to company resources, the SSL-VPN portal provides simple browser-based remote access on desktop or mobile devices. When accessing the portal via the web browser on a desktop or mobile device, users can browse apps, network folders, and files as if they were connected to the office network. The SSL-VPN portal supports all commonly used desktop and mobile devices.
CudaLaunch and SSL-VPN functionality is provided as part of the Advanced Remote access subscription.
