You should be looking for a Cisco VPN concentrator. Cisco has recently introduced SSL VPN support on their VPN Concentrator. Using SSL VPN, clients can connect to your corporate office using SSL VPN (from the web browser).
For Branch Offices, you can configure a site to site VPN on the VPN Concentrator. You would require either a PIX firewall, Router or VPN 3002 hardware client at the branch office.
The diagram in the above link, will work for you. Choice of router, firewall, etc depends on number of users, type of wan connection on the router, etc.
A PIX 515 would be a good choice for most medium sized enterprises. A VPN Conc 3005 is a good start but you might want to consider higher end VPN Conc models, if you plan to expand the number of remote sites, and remote users accessing your HQ via VPN.
What type of Internet connection do you plan to have at the HQ and Branch offices ? A 3600 or 3700 at the HQ would be a good start, enabling you to provide space for growth. A 1700 VPN accelerator bundle or a 2600 at the remote site would be a good choice for a site to site VPN. The choice of the router all depends again on the number of users at each site and the number of tunnels you plan to configure per site.
