I’ll +1 the Edgerouter series. They are cheap and hit the right price

You can do site-to-site IPSEC VPN stuff and easily SSH + tcpdump if necessary.
If you are looking for more complex blocking rules and services, you need to be
looking at something like the Deteque DNS service or the Cisco/OpenDNS services
instead to nuke outbound malware connections and such.
