Barracuda Load Balancer

 

  Barracuda Load Balancer

Acenseo is the leading network security services consultants in UK

According to industry analysts, fewer than 20% of mission critical Internet applications achieve internal objectives for continuous availability.  Challenges include maintaining uptime when servers fail, scaling data center capabilities to handle increased load, and protecting infrastructure from network vulnerabilities.

Designed to help organizations achieve their availability objectives, the Barracuda Load Balancer integrates IP load balancing and network intrusion prevention into an affordable and easy to use appliance. The Barracuda Load Balancer provides comprehensive failover capabilities in case of server failure, distribution of traffic across multiple servers, and integrated protection from network intrusions.

  • Internet sites with high traffic requirements, including Web, FTP, media streaming, and content delivery networks
  • Hosted applications using thin-client architectures, such as Windows Terminal Services
  • Other IP services requiring optimal performance, including SMTP, DNS, RADIUS, TFTP

 

  Powerful, Enterprise-Class Solution

 

The Barracuda Load Balancer’s integrated Service Monitor ensures that servers and their associated applications are operational. In the event of server or application failure, the Barracuda Load Balancer facilitates automatic failover to ensure continuous availability. The Barracuda Load Balancer also assists in orchestrating scheduled maintenance windows on specific servers while maintaining application availability through other servers in the server farm.

 

To mitigate risks associated with failures of the load balancers themselves, two Barracuda Load Balancers can be deployed in an active/passive configuration.  In the event of failure of a primary active Barracuda Load Balancer, the secondary Barracuda Load Balancer will automatically activate and assume the identity of the primary load balancer so as to maintain application availability.

  Easy to Use and Maintain

 

The Barracuda Load Balancer is extremely easy to deploy, featuring automatic discovery and configuration tools through an intuitive Web interface. To minimize ongoing administration associated with security, the Barracuda Load Balancer automatically receives current intrusion prevention and security updates from Barracuda Central, an advanced 24/7 security operations center that works to continuously monitor and block the latest Internet threats.

 

The Barracuda Load Balancer also facilitates automatic configuration through a Web-based application programming interface (API) and system monitoring through SNMP.

 

  Affordable

 

While price and complexity have historically restricted some organizations from deploying load balancers, the Barracuda Load Balancer is designed for organizations of all sizes. With no per port or per server license fees, the Barracuda Load Balancer is the most affordable enterprise-grade load balancing solution in its class.

Barracuda SSL VPN

 

  Barracuda SSL VPN
  Also available as a virtual appliance…

Acenseo is the leading network security services consultants in UK

The Barracuda SSL VPN is an integrated hardware and software solution enabling secure, clientless remote access to internal network resources from any Web browser. Designed for remote employees and road warriors, the Barracuda SSL VPN provides comprehensive control over file systems and Web-based applications requiring external access. The Barracuda SSL VPN integrates with third-party authentication mechanisms to control user access levels and to provide Single Sign-On.

  • Enables access to corporate intranets, file systems or other Web-based applications
  • Tracks resource access through auditing and reporting facilities
  • Scans uploaded files for viruses and malware
  • Securely connects smart phones and tablets (Apple OS, Android and Windows Mobile OS) via L2TP/IPSec or PPTP
  • Leverages multi-factor, layered authentication mechanisms, including RSA SecurID and VASCO tokens
  • Integrates with existing Active Directory and LDAP directories
  • Utilizes policies for granular access control framework
  • Advanced clustering
  • Supports any Web browser on PC or Mac

  Powerful, Complete Solution

 

Installed in a matter of minutes, the Barracuda SSL VPN enables complete control over the resources designated for external access, such as internal Web applications, file systems and other applications. From any Web browser, users can take advantage of a reverse proxy to access internal Web applications or access network files shares. Richer support for SSL tunneling is enabled through the Barracuda SSL VPN Agent, a lightweight Java client that supports common remote applications, including Remote Desktop Services, Citrix XenApp, VNC, NX, SSH and Telnet.

For complete network layer access, the Barracuda SSL VPN includes the Barracuda Network Connector, an installable VPN client for TCP or UDP connectivity. With the Barracuda Network Connector, users gain SSL access to legacy client/server application during a VPN session.

 

With robust security and auditing features, administrators define custom policies to govern resource access to particular users or groups while tracking user activity. For added security, files uploaded during a VPN session to network file shares or internal Web sites are scanned for viruses and other malware to prevent infections of critical network resources.

 

  Best-of-Breed Access Control

 

Remote access by nature can be risky exposing network resources across the Internet. However the Barracuda SSL VPN mitigates these risks by tightly controlling user access through a full suite of authentication mechanisms and support for third-party authentication, such as Active Directory or LDAP. Administrators have the option of layering security by enforcing the use of PIN numbers, hardware tokens, client certificates and other forms of secure authentication on top of AD or LDAP.

 

By restricting usage to internal resources upon presenting the correct credentials and token code, an organization securely manages external access to network resources. The policy-based access control framework integrates into existing AD or LDAP schema to grant users rights and permissions. For added granularity, administrators have the option of setting policy to set and limit network resources by AD or LDAP rights. Once access is granted, the administrator monitors resource access from VPN clients by the use of the auditing feature.

 

  Easy-to-Use

 

With no software to install and minimal configuration of the firewall, installation of the Barracuda SSL VPN is quick and easy. Once installed, the system administrator uses the intuitive Web user interface for monitoring and maintenance. With Barracuda Energize Updates, the Barracuda SSL VPN is continuously updated with the latest virus and application definitions every hour keeping maintenance at a minimum and eliminating administrative overhead. Updates are provided by Barracuda Central, an advanced 24×7 security operations center that works to continuously monitor and block the latest Internet threats.

 

  Affordable

 

With no per user fees, the Barracuda SSL VPN is the most affordable enterprise-class SSL VPN solution available.
