Granular Resource Management

Barracuda SSL VPN integrates a powerful engine that enables administrators to selectively authorize traffic to approved resources. The device integrates with Active Directory, LDAP, and other user databases, allowing administrators to define granular policies that allow specific users and groups to access network resources.

Administrators can configure access to resources such as intranet sites, mapped network drives, applications like RDP, SSH/SFTP, CITRIX XenApp, and others.

Multi-Factor Authentication

Barracuda SSL VPN can be configured to enforce a combination of authentication schemes including Active Directory passwords, hardware tokens, client certificates, and PIN numbers. It supports RSA SecurID, VASCO, Safeword, and CryptoCard authentication servers through RADIUS integration for access using a one-time password token in order to ensure protection for limiting only authorized users to enter the network.

Network Access Control

Remote users have the freedom to access network resources from a variety of end-points to client machines including shared computers. Barracuda SSL VPN provides extensive network access control methods that will ensure a computer requesting remote access adheres to established security policies based on the operating system, web browser version, and other connection parameters before permitting network access.

Barracuda Network Connector

Barracuda Network Connector is a secure IP tunneling client installed on users' workstations or laptops.It creates an IP connection to the Barracuda SSL VPN appliance and has a fully routed VPN connection to the remote network. It also supports password, PIN, or RADIUS authentication for added security. 

Hardware Token Authentication

Barracuda SSL VPN supports RSA SecurID, VASCO, Safeword, and CryptoCard authentication servers through RADIUS integration. Hardware token authentication supports access using one-time password (OTP) tokens.

Single Sign-On

Barracuda SSL VPN integrates with user databases via LDAP, RADIUS, Active Directory, and NIS. It can pass users' Active Directory credentials to the remote desktop session for true Single Sign-On. For transparent authentication when using reverse-proxy web forwarding, intranet websites can be launched that pass users' credentials to web applications.

Reporting and Auditing

Barracuda SSL VPN generates reports on VPN use, users, resource activity and now system administrators can easily view logs and generate reports for clear visibility into remote access. All resource access through the Barracuda SSL VPN is audited. Real-time reports display privilege use, failed logons, file, and intranet use, as well as other information. The status page also provides statistics about resource use.

Clientless Remote Access

Barracuda SSL VPN provides secure remote access to networks resources from any web browser.this removes 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.

Web Portal

A web portal provides remote users with easy access to their assigned resources. Navigation is so easy that users in the office often prefer to use the portal to access their network resources as well.

Multiple User Realms

Administrators use realms when an organization has multiple user databases. Realms let the Barracuda SSL VPN authenticate against multiple domain servers and directories such as LDAP and NIS.

SSL Tunnelling

Barracuda SSL VPN securely connects remote users through SSL-encrypted tunnels from any web browser without any client software. However, for richer tunneling, it offers the Barracuda SSL VPN agent, a lightweight Java tunneling client. This agent supports remote applications such as Remote Desktop Services, Citrix XenApp, VNC, NX, SSH, and Telnet.

Antivirus

 Barracuda SSL VPN automatically scans files uploaded to the network file system and from intranet web applications for viruses, spyware, and other malware. Barracuda Energize Updates keep virus definitions current in real time to prevent even the latest malware from uploading to the network.

Virtual Keyboard

The virtual on-screen keyboard is a security feature that defends against key-logging attacks. The virtual keyboard echoes characters the user clicks on.

Automatic Cache Cleaning

A cache-cleaning utility automatically clears session data from the user's web cache and history when the user logs out or disconnects. Cache cleaning prevents unauthorized exposure of information when users access the Barracuda SSL VPN from public or shared computers.

Access Resources in Other Networks

Eliminate risk and burden of using a fully routed IPsec connection with Barracuda SSL VPN Server Agent . It connects to services hosted on remote networks from the Barracuda SSL VPN.

Google Authenticator

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 and it works on both the desktop and mobile portals.

Risk Based Authentication (RBA)

Barracuda SSL VPN provides risk-based authentication for Web Forwards, applications and SSL tunnels. Each launch of these resource types can be protected by PIN, password, or Google Authenticator. This feature works on both the desktop and mobile portals.
