BGP on ASA

I have two ASA 5520 running, if the main firewall fail it should fail over to the 2nd, I want to get a next ISP so if the 1st ISP fail it should fail over to the next ISP, I want to use BGP to route between ISP, do I have to get a router and put it before the two ASA or I can run BGP on the two ASA, so if one ISP fail it fail over to the next ISP and keep the same config that if one firewall fail it fail over to the next ASA?

Can any one help me out, I really don't want to buy a next router.

Re: BGP on ASA

There isn't much benefit of using the BGP for 'just failover' unless you have the whole internet routing table and want to load balance or something. For two ISPs (with one as backup) you can use the procedure in the link provided by Marwan. The ASA does not support BGP at all. However you can make it pass through the ASA (if required).

BGP on ASA

Wondering if any of the latest ASA updates now allow the ASA5520 to support BGP?  How about the new ASA5525, will that support BGP?
