I have run pfsense very happily at work (and home) for many years - it's
nicely comprehensive and easy to use. Netgate (owners of pfsense) make some
devices with pfsense preinstalled, which I can't speak from much experience
with. Until we moved office and I got the budget to replace it, we have an
old Pentium dual core Dell desktop running pfsense.
