You can't find out much about Oreo's without going to Nabisco and the
same is true for stateful inspection and Checkpoint.

Fred Avolio has a paper compare/contrast stateful inspection and
application gateway at: http://www.avolio.com/apgw+spf.html

Many current offerings are using some kind of hybrid between pure
filtering, stateful inspection and proxying, including Checkpoint and
vendors other than Checkpoint.  The re-labeling of some products
further confuses the view, e.g. Nokia=Checkpoint.
