Yes you can.  A great FREE 3rd party web filtering product is Open DNS.

OpenDNS is a perfect solution for people who either lack the time or expertise to set up and administer a full-out content-filtering server. OpenDNS replaces your current DNS server and allows you to filter every connection coming out of your location if you change the DNS settings at the router level. No matter if someone is on your main desktop or connecting into your wireless via laptop, everything will be filtered by OpenDNS. You can set custom filters to white list and black list specific sites and customize the range of filters they provide for you.

is there any Cisco Hardware or Software for Category Based Web Filtering ?
Yes Cisco does make WSA's and they vary based on needs. Please see this link that describes the Web Security Appliance in detail as well as their data sheet.
