McAfee Event Receiver is responsible for the collection of log and event information from hundreds of third-party devices including firewalls, IDS/IPS devices, UTMs, switches, routers, applications, servers and workstations, identity and authentication systems, vulnerability assessment scanners, and more. McAfee Event Receiver uses a variety of collection methods including passive log collection, authenticated log collection, CEF, OPSEC, SDEE, XML, ODBC, as well as an encrypted collection validated to FIPS 140-2 Level 2.
When a McAfee Event Receiver collects an event, it parses all relevant details into a fully normalized event taxonomy, and then provides full correlation against all events to detect larger incidents. McAfee Event Receiver correlates events collected by other distributed receivers for system-wide threat detection.
