New Version Improves Mobile Phone and Tablet Access to Internal Web Applications and Files

CAMPBELL, Calif. -- Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE: CUDA), a leading provider of cloud-connected security and storage solutions, today announced the availability of Barracuda SSL VPN version 2.5, offering employees improved remote access to internal web applications and files from virtually anywhere - including iPads, iPhones, Windows phones and Android devices - without having to deploy or support full VPN clients.

"The diversity of iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile platforms in use in typical 'bring your own device' environments can make supporting VPN and remote access challenging," said Stephen Pao, GM Security, Barracuda. "The latest release of the Barracuda SSL VPN is designed to provide an optimized mobile user experience, making it easy for IT administrators to offer their users secure, modern and cloud-like access to internal web applications and files without the overhead of enterprise app stores or enterprise mobile device management platforms."

Highlights of the new Barracuda SSL VPN version 2.5 include:

--  Ubiquitous Access: New mobile portal allows remote workers to securely access internal enterprise applications such as Sharepoint, Internal Order Systems, Intranets and more from virtually any mobile device.
--  Secure Access Control: Administrators have control over user access with the option to further secure resources with one-time passwords to mobile phones, security prompt questions, or integration with advanced authentication systems like hardware tokens, RADIUS, and other additional security features.
--  Simple Pricing: Remote access for mobile devices was designed for ease-of-use and low support costs with no per-user fees.
--  Easy Configuration: Easy configuration of Windows devices, as well as iPhones, iPads and Mac devices for Exchange, LDAP, Webclips, Client Certificates, IPsec and PPTP.

Barracuda SSL VPN version 2.5 also provides business continuity via remote access to corporate resources during natural disasters or other emergency events. "During the floods, we were able to quickly deploy the Barracuda SSL VPN to allow our staff to continue working remotely," said Chris Robinson, IT Manager Queensland Art Gallery.
