To disable the firewall and network protection notifications using Microsoft Intune, we will use configuration service provider (CSP). A configuration service provider (CSP) is an interface to read, set, modify, or delete configuration settings on the device.

For a supported CSP’s, please refer Configuration service provider reference.

For firewall/network protection, there is CSP which we can use to create a custom device configuration policy in Microsoft Intune and deploy to user group.

From the Microsoft documentation, we can see that, there is setting ‘DisableInboundNotifications’
