The Secure Computing - (now owned by McAfee) - Sidewinder G2 is fips 140-2 compliant and comes as an appliance. Not sure on costs these days.

10 - 20 k might be enough for only one of the Sec. Computing /Mcafee Sidewinder firewalls.
what are you using the firewall for? Just general traffic Ip table filtering + application inspection, or do you need DNS, mail filter etc?
If it is just standard IP table filtration Mcafee also have a small form factor UTM. Used to be called Snap gear, now it is probably something else. Check out his link


That should be more within your budget.
