Here's a cheat, just for you (don't tell anyone): use all six spaces, it increases your chances of being da big winnah...

Here's another: make sure one of your words is "intrusion." Nothing gets the decision maker's adrenaline going better than "intrusion" as it conjures up images of bad guys sneaking into the subnet space. It also plays well with the big bosses, the CFO, COO and CEO, as they can easily get the concept - and get scared by it.

1. First word: we suggest a powerful adjective such as "Universal." Remember, it doesn't have to mean anything. Be adventurous. Here you go:

3. Now for the third word a scarily attention getting adjectivey noun like "Threat" would be... ok, ok, I'll shut up...

4. Doing good, keep it up. Fourth word: Oh come on, you can't stop at three. Look, this whole thing started out with a single word, "firewall" and has been growing ever since! Gotta make this look like Progress, ya know? Thatsa boy. (girl?):

 6. The home stretch! Six words, this is gonna be one powerful scary costly sounding synonym for firewall. Now here's a hint. This should be a plain vanilla nondescript matter of fact noun such as "Appliance." Go for it!
