USM Anywhere enables you to make the sensorSensors are deployed into an on-premises, cloud, or multi-cloud environment to collect log and other security-related data. This data is normalized and then securely forwarded to USM Anywhere for analysis and correlation. drop future eventsAny traffic or data exchange detected by AT&T Cybersecurity products through a sensor, or through external devices such as a firewall. that match the rule. These future events are neither correlated nor stored. Through these rules, you are able to define which event data you are going to store in USM Anywhere. You pay for the data you use, so discarded event information is not stored and does not count against the service-level tier of an account. This rule runs on a sensor and control node. The action of this rule has no recovery, so you must be careful when creating the rule. This action can cause a user-generated data loss environment.

Note: Filtering rules are not retroactive. The rule applies to future items and it does not apply to previous items, even if those items follow the rule.

Important: You can't use a correlation list when you create a filtering rule.
