Looking for a Cisco ASA security solution for our network

Our company has acquired a second physical lcation and i'm currently looking for a way to implement Internet and Point-to Point security between the 2 locations. Both sites have (will have) 20Mbps fiber u\d to the Internet and we are looking to implement a dedicated dark-fiber tunnel between the two sites as Time Warner is the ISP for both locations. Is there a way to  implement the type of solution that we seek while using ASA's to secure both the Public Internet connection and the Private dedicated link? We would ideally like to use a single ASA (or equivalent hardware from another vendor) at each location but at this point we are open to sugestions. Thanks in advance.

How many users are at the remote location and what's the amount of traffic? If its not a lot, an ASA 5505 with the security+ license will work. It will allow you to have multiple VLANs for each network (ISP, PTP and local) and you can assign the multiple interfaces to each one.

Otherwise, you can do it with a larger ASA (5510 or 5520) and each interface will let you connect to a network. The you will using routing to distinguish the traffic between networks and only NAT traffic going to the ISP.

I would seriously recommend a 5510 or better over a 5505. A 5505 will seriously choke up that amount of bandwidth unless it's running in transparent mode, in which case I don't think it's a particularly meaningful solution.

In our ideal solution we would like to have our dedicated fiber link between our two facilities encrypted and our connections to the public internet for both sites secured and monitored by a 5510 appliance at each location. Will this be possible with the 5510?

Yes. You can specify one connection as the "outside" interface for the Internet with a security level of 0 and one interface with a security level of say 50 if you want to restrict access to the remote site.
