Secure Remote Access to Azure

Barracuda CloudGen Firewall Google Cloud Platform Features Diagram

Moving from an on-premises infrastructure to the cloud creates a new challenge for secure remote access. Azure provides a finite number of remote connections to network-facing applications, whereas companies may want remote workers to have access across a range of devices – from mobiles to laptops. Unfortunately, the security built-in to such devices often leaves security gaps and compromises the ability to leverage Azure for these mission-critical applications.

By deploying the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall, you gain an almost unlimited capability to remotely connect users to these applications. Dedicated VPN clients are available for the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall to support most popular device operating systems. The CloudGen Firewall also provides highly granular control, which can be defined both by user and application, further hardening an organization’s security when running mission-critical apps in the cloud.

Go Beyond the Limits of IPsec with TINA Connections

The Barracuda CloudGen Firewall includes Barracuda’s high-speed TINA tunnel. This was developed to overcome the limitations that come with standard IPsec connections, and TINA (Transport Independent Network Architecture) protocol allows the use of TCP, UDP, and ESP for high speed VPN connections, which improves the VPN connectivity substantially.

In an Azure deployment, TINA offers a significant enhancement over standard IPsec connections, and in an Azure ExpressRoute deployment, the Barracuda CloudGen Firewall offers a fail-over and secondary channel to ExpressRoute’s direction connections, while providing full visibility of network traffic to and through Azure.
