Firewall Policies for my Data Center

Hello Friends!
This is my first professional job to handle my company data center. Now they require Security for their data center. There is no any firewall implement yet. I have Cisco firewall 5505 want to configure as transparent. I don't know much more about security.
So i want to discuss what are the policies should be apply for my Data Center as transparent firewall. 
Thanks!

Polices are based on the business requirement, most of DC required http / https other commpn ports for the external people to connect in.

Re: Firewall Policies for my Data Center

OUTSIDE and INSIDE should have same network like a switch, and use traffic inspect policy, like inspect icmp, ftp, http etc.

 

You can find it at Configuration -> Firewall -> Inspect policy -> global policy. You don't need acl's because the security level will deal with the traffic flow, also you can use arp filtering.

Check this link https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/security/asa/asa82/configuration/guide/config/fwmode.html
