Getting Data In

Getting McAfee ESM logs to Splunk


Hi All,

Have a requirement with a client that they are looking at integrating their Existing McAfee ESM with the Splunk ES. The requirement is as below.

The network devices/servers/applications will send the logs to ESM. From ESM, the logs have to be forwarded to Splunk. It can either be cooked or raw data which ever is feasible. Have anyone had the chance to do similar integration, please let me know how to take it forward.

McAfee ESM can save tabular data to .csv files. We are only looking to export the data out of ESM once so we are going to export into .csv format and create a LookUp out of it.

If you run a report at whatever interval you need, you can save it as a .csv and direct Splunk to suck it up in whatever fashion you choose. It should all be easily automatized too.
