Looking for suggestions for an internet content filtering appliance

We offer an optional internet content filtering service to our residential
and business customers using M86's appliance

I've been in conversation with them since Q1 regards IPv6 support, but the
update I received today was that IPv6 support won't be available until
middle to late next year.  That's not ideal, because the local college is a
significant user and they started with IPv6 this summer.  College students
can easily bypass content filtering by using the IPv6 version of the site
(i.e. http://www.playboy.com.sixxs.org)

Wondering if anyone can point me to a similar appliance.  I know that
Barracuda has such an appliance but it has one limitation I don't like, and
that Fortinet and Ironport have more expensive products.

It must be able to operate in pass-by/SPAN mode, not inline, and handle
traffic rates up to 1 Gbps.  We currently move 400+ Mbps "by" it and
internet usage only goes up.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions you have.

Kind regards,
