It is never recommended to have any server, even if only front end, exposed
to the Internet without being behind a firewall.

You can either all OWA to be accessible through the firewall, or create a
DMZ zone and put the front end there.

While ISA server is the best choice for publishing Exchange and OWA, any
true firewall should be able to allow access to OWA.
