Windows Defender does not disable after Cortex XDR v7.1.1 install

L0 Member

Hello, hope you are all doing well and staying safe.


Traps v6.1.0 was installed on a server and Windows Defender never auto disabled causing Antimalware Service to run alongside Traps. I uninstalled Traps and replaced it with the new Cortex XDR v7.1.1, but still Windows Defender will not disable. For the majority of our systems Windows Defender has disabled, but it has come to my attention that on some machines it is not.


Does anyone know why this may be happening? We are about to upgrade ~1000 endpoints from v6.1 to v7.1 over the next couple weeks and I want to make sure Windows Defender is disabled to reduce resource consumption.


Thanks in advance!
