Receiver data sources

The McAfee Event Receiver enables the collection of security events and network flow data from multi-vendor sources including firewalls, virtual private networks (VPNs), routers, Nitro IPS/IDS, NetFlow, sFlow, and others. Data sources are used to control how log and event data are gathered by the Receiver. You must add data sources and define their settings so they collect the data you need.

The Data Sources page is the starting point to manage the data sources for your Receiver device. It provides a way for you add, edit, and delete data sources, as well as import, export, and migrate them. You can also add child and client data sources.
