VPN offers a secure, efficient, and economical way to connect physically separate networks and lets users access corporate network resources from a remote location.
The Barracuda NG Firewall provides three types of VPN services:
- Site-to-Site VPN – Securely and transparently connects remote locations with your network.
Client-to-Site VPN offers users access to the corporate network from a remote location over a secure tunnel connection. Clients authenticate by user/password and/or X.509 certificates. Depending on the VPN client device, the Barracuda NG Firewall supports TINA or VPN protocols. Mobile devices running iOS or Android can connect using IPsec with pre-shared keys.
For more information, see Client-to-Site VPN.
SSL VPN grants users secure SSL/TLS-encrypted access to internal corporate resources and applications through a customizable web interface without the need of installing or configuring a VPN client. SSL VPN supports centralized authentication, authorization, and content inspection. Server and application URLs are translated into a URL namespace, making resources accessible via a single hostname.
