Designed for Mobile and BYODs

CudaLaunch is an application for iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS created for remote workers requiring secure and reliable access to your business. It has been specially designed for mobile and BYOD devices, and it connects to a Barracuda CloudGen Firewall.

Easy to Use

To make things simple for end users, CudaLaunch has an interactive Launchpad that provides easy and secure access to internal web applications. In addition , the Launchpad provides quick access to remote desktop applications (RDP) as well as SSL tunnels or IP VPN connections for other client apps. CudaLaunch uses Barracuda’s own proprietary TINA1 VPN protocol providing additional security and performance. Unlike browser-based remote access techniques, CudaLaunch offers a more responsive interface and a richer user experience across mobile platforms.

1. TINA (Transport Independent Network Architecture) VPN is a proprietary VPN protocol and allows use of TCP, UDP, and ESP for high-speed VPN connections, which improves the VPN connectivity substantially.

Zero-Touch Provisioning

Designed from the ground up for Zero Touch Provisioning, CudaLaunch provides IT administrators with easy central management for large deployments. CudaLaunch access control policies are inherited from the Barracuda CloudGen Firewalls, which provide a single place to manage unified ed security policy across all types of remote access, including CudaLaunch, SSL VPN, Barracuda Network Access Client, and standard IPsec VPN connections. CudaLaunch checks and updates new client configurations when started, streamlining both initial setup as well as ongoing maintenance of VPN connections on client devices. Additionally – with consistent interfaces across client types – IT helpdesk support is simplified. Types of remote access include CudaLaunch, SSL VPN, Barracuda Network Access Client, and standard IPsec VPN connections.
