New iOS and Android Application Simplifies Mobile Access to Private Cloud Applications and Networks through Barracuda NG Firewall
CAMPBELL, CA – July 22, 2015 — /BackupReview.info/ — Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA) –
Press Release Highlights:
Barracuda announces today the release of CudaLaunch, an application for both iOS and Android devices that provides mobile workers secure remote access to their organization’s private cloud applications and networks through the Barracuda NG Firewall. The application is designed for both mobile workers and IT administrators, with simple end-user features for productivity and easy-to-use management features for administrators.
“Granting mobile and remote access to an organization’s information has proven to be beneficial for many business processes, but it can also put constraints on the IT administration and its security posture as a whole. The remote access and mobile Internet threat vectors have been particularly affected because mobile devices are constantly moving between secure corporate networks and insecure home or public Wi-Fi where they can be exposed to phishing and social engineering attacks,” explains Klaus Gheri, VP Network Security, Barracuda. “Barracuda addresses these IT constraints with CudaLaunch. It can extend private cloud access to end-users, and includes easy-to-use management tools for system administrators.”
For end users, CudaLaunch presents an interactive Launchpad that provides easy and secure access to internal web applications hosted in the private cloud. The Launchpad also provides easy access to IP VPN connections for other clients, such as Remote Desktop or Voice-over-IP (VoIP) applications, to communicate securely from outside the firewall. On Apple iOS platforms, CudaLaunch manages native IPsec VPN profiles. On Android platforms, it uses Barracuda’s own proprietary TINA VPN protocol providing additional security and performance. Unlike browser-based remote access techniques, CudaLaunch provides a more responsive interface and a better user experience across mobile platforms.
“CudaLaunch provides seamless access to our business applications on tablets and phones,” said Wim Tijman, Consultant, Ditp Beheer & Explotatie. “We are very happy with our Barracuda NG Firewall deployments and we were looking to easily add mobile connectivity. We found the application to be simple, fast, functional, and secure – just as you’d expect from Barracuda. CudaLaunch takes secure access to the next level in the expanding mobile landscape.”
Designed to be self-configuring, CudaLaunch provides IT administrators with easy central management for large deployments. The application’s access control policies are inherited from the Barracuda NG Firewall, which provides one place to manage unified security policies across different types of remote access, including CudaLaunch, SSL VPN, Barracuda Network Access Client and standard IPsec VPN connections. CudaLaunch checks and updates new VPN configurations when started, streamlining both initial set up as well as ongoing maintenance of VPN connections on client devices. In addition, with consistent interfaces across both iOS and Android devices, IT helpdesk support is simplified.
