Moving to freebsd firewall for a small DataCenter network

I have been using FreeBSD for many years as a server and have based
most of my hosting services on this fantastic OS.
Since three years I have been using SonicWall firewall as a firewall
As my hosting services are growing, It seems that the SonicWall device
is quite "light" for what I am doing. I have now 10 servers hosted on
one uniq /28 network with direct connexion to the Net.
I was wondering if there is a good if possible "integrated" firewall
device running on FreeBSD.
I have deployed local firewall on each of my servers based on ipf.
Works great, but I am not sure I want to dig all the time into a file
based config, little visual interface could ease my pain… (of course
this is optional).
I would like something quite strong but simple that I could deploy on
a small 1U server or dedicated device.
Any pointer / howto / feed back on experience will be most welcome.
Something similar to this could be nice: http://www.untangle.com/
Thanks for your support.
