ASA 5520 with SSM-4GE

Yes you can. You can add the SSM-4GE to have 9 interfaces on ASA 5520. The onboard has 5 interfaces, plus the SSM-4GE interface card = 9 interfaces.

Here is the doc for your reference:

There is another option that you could consider:

The 5520 is far away from the interface-speed of 1 Gig. So you could build a trunk to a switch and work with subinterfaces on the ASA.

Additionally I would use the ASA 5515-X nowadays instead of the 5520.
