You really expect the marketing department to have clue? :-)
no one expects the marketing department to have even been in the same
room as a clue.
but you're misunderstanding his point. the consumers buying the product
read the box and a significant percentage of them are foolish enough to
believe what the box tells them. one of the big selling points in the
on-box marketing gibberish are foolish claims that NAT is a security
device, and some devices actually claim to be firewalls even though the
only thing that passes for security in them is the port NAT.
