Why does igfxem.exe access the network?
While investigating igfxem.exe with the GlassWire network security monitor on our devices based in Austin, TX USA we found it connects to an Akamai CDN network server e11.dsca.akamaiedge.net. It appears it phones home to collect some telemetry data, and to look for software updates. We blocked its network access using GlassWire’s firewall and it seemed to still function normally with no issues.
