Expand your corporate office infrastructure with secure remote access
Barracuda’s Network Access Client provides sophisticated VPN connectivity for Windows, macOS, and Linux with richer performance and functionality than standard IPsec client software.

- Optimal VPN-gateway detection based on location.
The Barracuda Network Access Client 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.
Secure remote access from any device, no need for pre-installed software
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 devices.
Secure remote access via smartphones and tablets
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.
Centrally manage all remote users and offices
Zero-touch provisioning lets you manage all security policies from a single location even with thousands of remote users connecting through a variety of technologies such as mobile apps, SSL-VPN, Barracuda Network Access Client, and standard IPsec VPN connections.
End users with mobile devices can download the CudaLaunch remote access client with no elevated permissions needed on their devices. CudaLaunch’s zero-touch administration features drastically reduce support and administration costs for rapidly changing mobile and BYOD devices.
”With up to 10,000 remote VPN clients connected to the data center, the Barracuda Network Access Client’s built in traffic compression significantly reduces subsequent bandwidth needs in our data center.”
