I work at a large company and started digging through firewall logs to get my head around the network and what is going on. I noticed a HUGE amount of traffic going to
126.96.36.199. I cross-correlated this IP with one of our network monitor tools and it shows this IP as
cs11.wpc.v0cdn.net. Based on research this looks to be some Microsoft telemetry data? I googled around and couldn't find any good info on how to stop our Windows servers (2012 R2 and 2016) from trying to call home.
Anyone else have this issue? It creates a huge amount of traffic on our firewalls (which we are dropping). Trying to get rid of some of the noise in our environment to make everyone's job a bit easier.
