Randomized Quick Scans in Defender for Endpoint

Copper Contributor


I'm currently testing randomizing quick scans in Defender for Endpoint by using the below parameters for the the Set-MpPreference command:


SchedulerRandomizationTime = 4 (a period of hours around the start time in which the quick scan should start)

RandomizeScheduleTaskTimes = $True


It would be great to hear from anyone who has experience with these settings. 


The context is Windows Servers on-boarded to Windows Defender for Cloud/MDE and with Security Configurations for Defender for Endpoint enabled to administer Security Polices in MEM.
