Firewall -- Replicate Changes ?

I have four locations and want a firewall that allows me to make a change ONCE and replicate it to firewalls at my three other locations.

Which firewall vendor allows this easy replication ?

Each site has 100 users.

I think multiple vendors can do this, Juniper would be one of them..

Using their NSM system you can assign 1 policy (collection of rules)  to all firewalls (or to a group of 4 whichever)
And using polymorphic objects you can use 1 network object in a rule that has a different context on each firewall.

I.e. one object "trusted-network" which is on one firewall, but means on another and on a third..

so all the firewalls can have the same rule applied but they all still use their specific context.

You could also look at software that can manage multiple device configurations at the same time (like: http://www.kiwisyslog.com/kiwi-cattools-activities/). That way you could choose what firewall you like/feel comfortable with/can afford.
