CudaLaunch is an application for Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android devices that provides mobile workers secure remote access through Barracuda CloudGen Firewall to their organization’s private cloud applications and other sensitive information. CudaLaunch provides several benefits over traditional browser-based SSL VPN remote access. As an app, it provides a familiar app store setup and install experience for end users.
Unlike browser-based remote access, CudaLaunch provides a more responsive look and feel that is unified across mobile platforms and avoids the idiosyncrasies of mobile browsers. Once an end user starts the app, a swipeable launchpad provides quick and easy access to internal applications, favorites, and TINA VPN connections (which securely connect the device to your corporate network). This richer VPN connection supports mobile apps that connect back to the corporate network (like remote desktop apps).
Designed to be completely self-configuring, CudaLaunch includes easy central management for large deployments and integrates with the powerful security features of Barracuda CloudGen Firewall. For IT administrators, the firewall provides one place to manage security policies for all types of remote access (CudaLaunch, SSL VPN, Barracuda Network Access Client, and standard IPsec). The end user experience is consistent across platforms and remote access types, making for ease of use and significantly lower support costs. The self-configuration and management of VPN connections eliminates the need to manually configure IPsec connections on Windows, macOS, iOS, and Android, making setup fast and easy.
