Don't some of the hardware firewalls run Linux and netfilter or ipchains?
Would one of those make both you and the boss happy?
I don't know of a list specifically for netfilter, but I have a list of
turnkey firewall products that use Linux FreeS/WAN for IPSEC VPN service.
My guess would be that most of those would use ipchains or netfilter for
the firewall component.
