If your ISP is same for all the location, then..You ca n configure site to site VPN for all the location (Your ISP willconfigure this) and Put an Firewall on the main site (Main Office). Configure VPN access for branch and monitor network traffic, You can go for Fortigate basic level firewall (Hardware) or Sonicwall.

For software firewall you can go Kerio firewall via AD authentication, If you are only looking for Proxy server you can go for Blue Coat...Or just need to check traffic of Internet and no restriction required then just let you know your ISP they will be having a link for checking Internet traffic for your sites.
I use a open source solution called Artica.

I use in my office and in offices on my clients.

It is a powerfull tool
