I'm in a search of a Gateway solution for my organization. We have 200 employees and my budget is $400-800. 

I've been checking Citrix Gateway, Aruba Wireless, Ubiquiti, and others. 

What gateway do you recommend choosing for my company (based on the mentioned budget) and why? 

Update: I need just a gateway/router (no VPN). And, possibly, I need a basic firewall, I'm not sure.

Any suggestions?
