Re: symantec brightmail data source

Hi Omerfsen,

at first - you can configure your Brighmail to use syslog server:

Then you can try to use Auto learn mode to find, if the ESM can recognize the brightmail's logs - I guess that events can be recognized as something like Unix\Linux.

And next - if the results won't be satisfied, you can wrote own parser rules in the policy editor.

You can also create a new PER on the following webpage: - remenber about the log examples, that should be attached to the PER.

Re: symantec brightmail data source

ACtually I am a bit suprised to see that Mcafee SIEM doesn't have  a normalization rules written for it since this product is around for a long term. I wonder if there is a specific reason for that. BTW at there is a pdf that contains all definitons for brightmail syslog. But of course we need a PER for that
