Barracuda SSL VPN Overview

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 provides single sign-on. • Enables access to corporate intranets, file systems or other Web-based applications • Tracks resource access through auditing and reporting facilities • Scans uploaded files for viruses and malware • Leverages multi-factor, layered authentication mechanisms, including RSA SecurID tokens • Integrates with existing Active Directory and LDAP directories • Utilizes policies for granular access control framework • Supports any Web browser on PC or Mac 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 adminstrator 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 continuously monitor and block the latest Internet threats. Affordable With no per user fees, the Barracuda SSL VPN is the most affordable enterprise-class SSL VPN solution available.

Barracuda SSL VPN Features

Today’s global economy demands employees to be increasingly more mobile and flexible in meeting business needs. An inherent challenge is enabling secure remote access to network resources with an audit trail. Typical users require the use of email, file servers, intranet Web sites, databases and desktop access to office workstations. With conventional VPN solutions such as IPSec or PPTP, secure access to resources are often difficult or impossible to manage. Accessible from any Web browser on any operating system, the Barracuda SSL VPN is an integrated hardware and software solution with the power of an enterprise-class solution and affordability demanded by organizations of all sizes. The Barracuda SSL VPN includes all of the features needed to enable resource access from a powerful policy-based permissions framework and maintains network hygiene by scanning for viruses before uploading files back to the network. Designed for remote employees and road warriors, the Barracuda SSL VPN provides an audit log of all activity during a VPN session. SSL Tunneling From any Web browser, users gain secure remote access to internal Web applications and network files shares. Richer support for SSL tunneling is enabled through the Barracuda SSL VPN agent, a lightweight Java tunneling client that supports common remote applications, including Remote Desktop, VNC, NX, SSH and Telnet. The Barracuda SSL VPN Agent also provides cache cleaning for all popular Web browsers. Barracuda Network Connector Designed for applications using UDP, the Barracuda Network Connector is a secure IP tunneling client installed on a user’s workstation or laptop. When the Barracuda Network Connector is started, a full IP connection is created to the Barracuda SSL VPN appliance. The Barracuda Network Connector has a fully routed VPN connection off t the remote network, enabling content to stream off the remote network and allowing the use of any TCP or UDP application, such as legacy client/server applications. Intranet Web Forwarding The Barracuda SSL VPN acts as a Web proxy for most intranet Web sites. There are a number of methods available to proxy intranet Web sites. The choice is determined by the complexity of the Web site. A cache cleaner is also included to clear the browser cache once the Barracuda SSL VPN Agent exits. Windows Explorer Mapped Drives When connecting using Windows 2000 or later, administrators configure the Barracuda SSL VPN Agent to automatically map network drives directly to file systems authorized for VPN access. These mapped drives are used like other network drives and are safely removed after the session ends. The Barracuda SSL VPN Agent transparently encrypts all files copied to and from mapped drives. Single Sign-On The Barracuda SSL VPN integrates with existing user databases via LDAP, RADIUS, Active Directory and NIS. This ensures user account maintenance is centralized and eliminates the duplication of user data across the organization. Additionally, the Barracuda SSL VPN authenticates certain services using credentials, including: • Remote Desktop. The Barracuda SSL VPN has the ability to pass the active users’ Active Directory credentials through to the Remote Desktop session for true single sign-on. • Intranet Web Forwards. When using the reverse proxy Web forwarding feature, intranet Web sites can be launched passing through the active users’ credentials to the Web application allowing transparent authentication. Antivirus All files uploaded during a Barracuda SSL VPN session to the network file system or from a proxied intranet Web application, are automatically scanned for viruses, spyware and other forms of malware. Virus definitions are maintained via Barracuda Energize updates to prevent compromised files from being uploaded to the network. Application Launching Using Application Launching, administrators can customize which applications are deployed to VPN users. The Barracuda SSL VPN includes a number of applications by default, such as SSH/SFTP, Telnet and Remote Desktop clients. With the Remote Desktop application, users are able to access their desktops with ease. Virtual Keyboard The virtual keyboard is an on-screen keyboard used as a security feature to defend against key logging attacks. The virtual keyboard echoes the character clicked on with the mouse. Tiered Authentication Schemes Tiered authentication schemes ensure the entry portal to an organization’s network is protected by comprehensive security. When using Active Directory authentication, the administrator can elect to implement a PIN authentication module before prompting for the user’s Active Directory password. This additional security layer decreases account lockouts from happening as a result of brute force password attacks on the domain. Hardware Token Authentication The Barracuda SSL VPN support RSA SecurID, VASCO, Secure Computing and CryptoCard authentication servers. The use of hardware token authentication allows for access using a one-time password token. Site-to-Site Connectivity The Barracuda SSL VPN Server Agent streamlines connections to services at remote sites without the security risks and overhead related with configuring and maintaining a fully routed IPSec connection. The Barracuda SSL VPN Server Agent directly connects to services hosted on remote sites from the Barracuda SSL VPN. Once installed at a remote site, shortcuts to services access resource via the Web portal interface. Auditing and Reporting All resource access via the Barracuda SSL VPN is audited. Reports are available in real time showing a comprehensive look at privilege usage, failed logons, file and intranet use. Additionally, the status page provides statistics showing resource use. Multiple User Realms Realms are used where multiple user databases exist within an organization. By using realms, the Barracuda SSL VPN can be configured to authenticate against multiple domain servers and other directories, such as LDAP and NIS at once. Customizable User Profiles Users can create profiles that store configuration settings unique to a session. Profiles are useful in the case where a user may connect to the Barracuda SSL VPN from a number of different locations. In these cases, proxy servers are preset and configured for the Barracuda SSL VPN Agent to use depending upon the location. SNMP/API Current utilization and appliance hardware health among other metrics may be obtained from the Barracuda SSL VPN by an SNMP client. RADIUS Authentication The Barracuda SSL VPN can authenticate against any RADIUS accounting and authorization server, as well as any third-party authentication server that communicates via RADIUS. Simplified and Centralized Administration The Barracuda SSL VPN features an easy-to-use Web user interface centralizing management to define and set remote access policy. With hourly updates from Barracuda Central, the Barracuda SSL VPN is virtually maintenance free for a cost-effective solution. • Barracuda Energize Updates.
