"The system "would literally, like an anti-aircraft weapon, shoot down
an attack before it hits its target," he said. "And that's what we call

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't even a basic firewall or ACL
provide the same functionality? Drop the packet, drop the attack? I'm in
the wrong business if implementing a firewall can net me $millions$ by
using appropriate buzzwords.....
