I have 54 branch offices and need each one to VPN to a central location.  Would an SSG140 work for this?  Could it also handle logging for the VPN traffic?

In terms of number of sessions, yes.

http://www.networkscreen.com/SSG140.asp?gclid=CM3tlrOembUCFcODQgodQQUAOQ

under the specifications tab the maximum number of concurrent sessions is 48,000.

Would this also be scalable for up to 200 VPN's?

Yes, assuming that the total amount of bandwidth is within the limits of the box.

The max vpn tunnels is 500 so 200 is not a problem.

I just noticed the logging part of your question.  It does support some logging and monitoring.  But if you want to get more sophisticated it can use a syslog server.

The SSG140 will work if you do not want or need to use route-based VPN (versus policy-based). It allows for 50 (static) tunnel interfaces only (the 500 are concurrent VPN tunnels, which are the sum of all route- and policy-based VPNs active at the same time).

In most cases you will use policy-based VPNs, but there are some scenarios you'll need tunnel interfaces, e.g. if you want to use one tunnel for non-consecutive target network addresses.

In regard of logging you will probably want to set up a syslog server, as recommended already, unless you are interested in traffic stats only (not sessions).
