Hi,
I am trying to put input into the design of our department network.  We have the following hardware and I'd like to know how to integrate them together for the best fit/practice.
3945 rtr
2 x 5520 ASA, 4250 IDS and Cacs appliance ADE1010.  I  am basically looking for a system that validates users before allowing them on the system and utilizes the firewall  to protect the system.

Some external or remote Users will access a webserver application remotely through Frame relay in through the 3945 rtr. Other remote users will access that same application through internet  DSL via a 2921 rtr.
Management Users will VPN into the system
I want everyone to be validated and I want the security to be installed where it is more effective.
Local users will access through another 2921.
Note we already have all this equipment. Eventually I hope to get a network person to configure but I want to be able to have meaningful input

Normally, you would place the ASA devices in between the edge router and your core router or core switch.

INTERNET -> ROUTER -> ASA -> LAN

The IDS device could either be placed on the LAN or in between the LAN and the ASA.

You can either have authentication (VPN etc) done at the edge router or the ASA, although the ASA is designed for VPN concentration more than the router.

Exchange server is not supported in any cloud-hosted platform (other than Azure with Azure Premium Storage).
Let’s face it: one of the reasons your organization chose a SaaS solution (whether Microsoft Dynamics 365, Netsuite or SAP) is that it is subscription-based. The upkeep is done. Or so you think.
