Hi guys

We are about to purchase new ASA equipments and I just wanted an advice.
First, we are focusing on ASA 5520. We have some requirements:


Topology must support redundancy in A/A or A/S. For that reason we are meant to acquire 2 ASA  
Anti-X support for up to 50 users.
VPN Support,
If possible IPS support.

My questions are.
Does Cisco ASA 5500 Series Firewall Edition include any module? Can I add a CSC-SSM-10 module to a Firewall edition bundle?

How many modules can I add to one ASA 5520?

Does an Anti-X editions support A/A and A/S availability?


Thanks

No

>>Can I add a CSC-SSM-10 module to a Firewall edition bundle?

Yes, but you should order the Content Security edition bundle to get the CSC-SSM-10 module.  See the following link:

>>How many modules can I add to one ASA 5520?

Only one.

>>Does an Anti-X editions support A/A and A/S availability?

Yes, but you'll need to order two identical edition bundles in order to achieve the A/A or A/S failover capability.  This means 2 firewalls, 2 CSC modules (1 for each firewall), two sets of CSC licensing (1 for each CSC module in each firewall).
