Is Windows Domain polling (or any kind of polling) necessary after setting up KSC and deploying the Network Agent and KES software to your clients? We don’t use KSC to deploy software and the network agent on each client is configured to check in once every 15 minutes.
My networking team has noticed that Kaspersky is scanning everything once per hour (as scheduled through the poll) and noticed that the scan seemed to be accessing SMB shares of servers as well, which they thought was strange as Kaspersky does not manage servers in our environment. They asked if the scan was necessary.
We primarily deploy KES and the KNA to our endpoints via another third-party management appliance, so is there any additional value to be found in having this polling enabled?

Polling is only used to discover unmanaged/unassigned systems. You can turn it off if you don't need it for deploying.
