Best hardware solution for small business to perform virus and firewall protection

I am looking for a hardware protection appliance for my small business.  I have had many issues with software on server driven solutions and looking for an affordable and direct hardware solution.  My business has four servers including a web server and 30 clients.  Five clients are remote.
 
Any recommendations would be helpful - thanks

You NEED to use more than just a hardware appliance.  An appliance is a great edge device but it cannot protect you from the employee who plugs in an infected USB flash drive or a wirm infested laptop.

Fortigate makes some good devices (and there are MANY others) google UTM Device (unified threat management devices).  

Software wise I use VIPRE Business antivirus with great success at all my clients these days.  NOTHING is 100% but a layered approach is most effective.

Sonicwall or Juniper make good hardware appliances that are modular in that you can add services like URL filtering, IDS, Virus scanning etc. Multiple interfaces so you can segregate your public facing website. In addition they support and come with VPN support for remote sites or clients.

Thanks to both for the input and education.   I am comparing VIPRE and Barracuda solutions.
Here is a list of UTM devices from the web:
