hello there,
first and foremost, read this articles in docs regarding all the ways to bring data to splunk.
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.6.1/Data/WhatSplunkcanmonitor
then you can look for the best way based on details in the pre-built applications or docs.
there are pre-built apps for most, if not to all data sources you mention here.
all you will need is to use your favorite search engine and write splunk for ...my data source...
also you can go to splunkbase https://splunkbase.splunk.com/ and start looking at the apps and read
with that being said, here is what i got from top of my head and. remember that there are more then one way (most of the times) and also that for some of the data sources you mentioned, DB MSSQL for example, there s the data in the DB and the data the DB generates about itself, like error log or performance etc... which is it that you want? maybe both?
also, consider syslog sever as an aggregation server or direct to splunk indexers via port or through heavy forwarder.
will lean toward syslog in most cases

FireEye EX - https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1904/#/details there are many, start with this one and read more

HyperVisor - MS? https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1253/#/overview
Intrushield - splunk add-on for McAfee?
LDAP - https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1852/#/details
DB MSSQL - DB Connect for data in DB or related add-on for data about the application itself
DB ORACLE - as above
Bluecoat Proxy - https://splunkbase.splunk.com/apps/#/search/blue/ pick which one, you will probably need the TA regardless
Cisco ASA VPN - https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1620/
WAF AKAMAI - https://splunkbase.splunk.com/apps/#/search/akamai/
Wireless
Autorun
As it seems there are many network inputs, consider a syslog server
hope it helps

Thanks for the quick response
I read the documentation for Microsoft active directory add-on .

I have a concern regarding configuration of Microsoft active directory add-on with UF. In the current environment the servers of DC are Windows server 2008R2 which requires additional add-on for microsoft powershell. Let say if I install UF on the host machine and install these both add -on on each DC , will this provide knowledge objects which can be used by Enterprise security or these add-on are just good enough for Microsoft Exchange or Splunk App for Windows Infrastructure deployment.

Also we are conducting a POC so we don't have any deployment servers to deploy the apps through deployment server.
In such scenario do we have to install the both add-on manually on each server ?

there are specific instructions on how to install.
read here all the way:
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/MSApp/1.4.1/MSInfra/ConfigureActiveDirectoryauditpolicy
data will be good for MS Exchange mS Infra and yes also for ES.
you can look at the add-ons details and verify they are CIM compliant
if you dont have deployment server, either install manually or via simple script.
since its a POC, why don't you start with just 1 or 2 severs?
lastly, you replied in a new answer, if the answer above satisfies the question, kindly mark it as answered.
hope it helps
