Good VPN solution

I'm looking to purchase a VPN router/firewall for a small company under 100 users. About 10 users will need VPN access. My whole network is already set up and secured so all I really need to do is to add a VPN router.  I purchased a RV042 recently but I did not like it since it only works in bridge mode and I don't like that for the security reasons. So I'm looking for another device and I'm not really sure what to pick should I go with a firewall device like CISCO ASA5505 or a router? All I really need is a secure VPN device.
Please advise
Thank you

My bad. This product is EOL.
The replacement is:
ASA 5505

If all you want is a dedicated vpn device, you could purchase a sslvpn device from any major supplier. Sonicwall makes quite a few, namely the ssl-vpn 2000,  and so does Juniper, the SA series of the ssl vpn. The Cisco option of the asa 5000 series will all you to bundle multiple things (SSL-VPN, Firewall, ETC) into a device.
I have used the cisco 5505 and the pix501 for this exact task.  Once you get it up and running they are great.  Right now I am running a 5510 with the ssl vpn which is nice to just do small tasks such as webmail.

You could always configure RRAS and PPTP for FREE with your SBS. All you would then have to do is open up port 1723 from the WAN interface and NAT it to the SBS box.

Now you have VPN for potentially all of your users.
