Hi guys,

About Barracuda Web Application Controllers

Barracuda Web Application Controllers, including both the Barracuda  
Web Application Firewall and Barracuda Application Gateway, protect  
Web sites from attackers leveraging protocol or application  
vulnerabilities to instigate unauthorized access, data theft, denial  
of service or defacement. Designed to deliver comprehensive Web  
security, Barracuda Web Application Controllers act as a proxy for Web  
traffic to insulate Web servers from direct access by hackers,  
enforces data security standards, such as the Payment Card Industry  
Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and secures Web sites against the  
top 10 major Web vulnerabilities compiled by Open Web Application  
Security Project (OWASP). Available in two models, the Barracuda Web  
Application Firewall provides Web applications and Web services with  
complete protection against malicious attacks. The Barracuda  
Application Gateway, also available in three models, enhances the  
powerful Barracuda Web Application Firewall to integrate traffic  
management capabilities for increased performance and availability.

I don't think *anything* can. I deliberately made some of the Top 10  
NP hard problems to avoid claims such as this.

thanks,
Andrew
