New Barracuda SSL VPN Model Supports up to 500 Concurrent Users in a Single Unit

CeBIT 2009, Hannover, Germany, 4th March, 2009 – (Hall 11 Stand B50) – Barracuda Networks Inc., the worldwide leader in email and Web security appliances, today launched the Barracuda SSL VPN 680, the newest addition to the Barracuda SSL VPN product line. The Barracuda SSL VPN 680 supports up 500 concurrent users, effectively serving organisations with thousands of users. Priced at £8,099 with no per user fees, the Barracuda SSL VPN 680 is the most affordable SSL VPN solution for large organisations.

“The benefits of SSL VPN technology have gone largely unrealised due to the high price and complexity associated with most solutions on the market,” said Stephen Pao, vice president of product management for Barracuda Networks. “With the Barracuda SSL VPN 680 we are breaking price and performance barriers for the enterprise and leveraging the simplicity of Barracuda Networks appliance deployment model.”

The Barracuda SSL VPN 680 uses existing SSL capabilities built into every modern Web browser, making user access as simple as browsing the Internet. The intuitive Web user interface makes it easy for administrators to monitor and maintain, as well as to provide granular access for greater control over individual resources. In addition, the Barracuda SSL VPN 680’s straightforward user portal allows users to view what resources are available unlike a traditional VPN which assigns a user an IP address on the network and then leaves it up to the end user to figure out what resources they are allowed to access.
