Barracuda works same way as follows...

now a days firewalls becomes Unified devices... which will having name specific content filtering...

for example xxx, porn... etc... which will find and blocks.

but actually a utm provider  (for example  Sonicwall/Cyberoam/Barracuda) will monitoring the internet traffic and collecting signatures over the internet  and when they found any signature which looks like virus or spam they immediately updates to its database..

this database will replicates to your Devise (UTM/Antispam) and updates Daily wise...

in the appliance the data packets received from out side it'll check these signatures and allows the data...

if any bad signature found it'll block or junk as per the policy..


thanks and regards
