Need to find a replacement VPN firewall that is compatible with Symantec Gateway Security 300 series.

Symantec gateway security (360) devices are no longer manufactured and Symantec has completely gotten out of the business.  I use these devices in my Network to join child offices to our main office via vpn links.  Plus they have a firewall which is basic but functions well.  I now need to find another device that will "connect" or marry to our WAN vpn links.  Do you know who happens to manufacture a device that is compatible with Symantecs VPN?  The device uses the following VPN policies:  ike_default_crypto, ESP MD5 Integrity, and DES encryption.  I am looking for something that is around or under $1000 as the Symantec was.  Thx

Too much coin when you figure in the licensing.

Nortel Contivity 1010. You'll need to add licensing for a firewall and, may be, tunnels depending how many you need.

No extra licensing costs at all for the Cisco ASA
It includes all licenses you will need and is well below your budget.
