Not sure what exactly your requirements are? Are you after something for 
an Ubuntu server or a hardware device?

I've been using QuintoLabs Proxy server which is basically a Content 
proxy (ICAP) running Squid. You can download their VM Appliance or build 
it yourself - give the appliance a go as it's an Ubuntu VM anyway and 
it's free.

You could build a server with this as well and place it in transparent 
or in-line mode with your current firewall once you are happy it meets 
your requirements.

Good luck!
