The Barracuda SSL VPN is an integrated hardware and software solution
enabling secure, clientless remote access to internal network
resources from any Web browser. Designed for remote employees and road
warriors, the Barracuda SSL VPN provides comprehensive control over
file systems and Web-based applications requiring external access. The
Barracuda SSL VPN integrates with third-party authentication mechanisms
to control user access levels and to provide Single Sign-On.

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 can take advantage of a reverse proxy to
access internal Web applications or access network files 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 Services, Citrix XenApp, 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
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 of
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
With no software to install and minimal configuration of the firewall,
installation of the Barracuda SSL VPN is quick and easy. Once installed,
the system administrator uses the intuitive Web user interface for
monitoring and maintenance. With Barracuda Energize Updates, the
Barracuda SSL VPN is continuously updated with the latest virus and
application definitions every hour keeping maintenance at a minimum and
eliminating administrative overhead. Updates are provided by Barracuda
Central, an advanced 24x7 security operations center that works to
