Hi Aiman_Fathima,


Full disk scanning is a legacy protection feature of EDR and is done by getting hash verdicts from WildFire for all file hashes observed on the endpoint.  You should look to your own internal policies and procedures as well as any applicable regulatory requirements to determine frequency of scanning.


Cortex XDR is not a legacy AV product, our protections are built around protecting an endpoint when code runs on an endpoint, including file hash verdicts, exploit protection and Behavioral Threat Protection (BTP).  We do provide periodic scanning functionality as it is still a part of some regulatory frameworks, but the bulk of our protections are geared around protecting systems from code that is actually attempting to execute or executing on endpoints.
