Well, OpenBSD is free, easy to configure and very
secure (by default). Cisco is Cisco, some people
like ... but i dont trust in it :)

have gathered that OpenBSD would be more secure than
Linux, and Cisco
appears to be an industry leader.

However, with all things being equal (i.e.
experience level of security
administrator, proper configuration, etc.) which
firewall would be "most"
secure and reliable?

A) OpenBSD    (non-ASIC)
B) Cisco      (ASIC)

Next, taking into consideration VPN needs on each
system, which would be
considered "most" secure and reliable?
