Hi,

SMB is used by ePO for push installation of Agents.
I'd suggest you open a support call so that your vulnerability report can be assessed in more detail so we can work out if it's really a concern or not rather than just trying to block SMB.

It would help if your scan report has a particular CVE reference, Nessus plugin ID or other specific identifier that can be used as a unique reference to check against.

Hth.
