Performance Enhancements to Malware Scanning
(
Windows
)
As part of continuous improvements to the Cortex XDR agent performance, the agent scanning process was refactored to use a single thread that will limit the CPU consumption to a fixed percentage, depending on the number of processors the endpoint has. For example, on a 4-core endpoint, the CPU consumption is now limited to 25%.
Disk Encryption Behavior
(
Windows
)
If a Cortex XDR Disk Encryption profile is enforced on the endpoint, when you upgrade to the 7.4 release or later, the agent will first decrypt the drive on the endpoint and then encrypt it again.
