Shall I install the updates? And Yes we do have Red Hat subscription.
Since your servers are not on the Internet there is almost no chance of you being attacked by malware. The only other reason to apply updates is to get rid of bugs. If you are not experiencing any bugs then I agree with your decision to not bother applying updates as that is probably a waste of time.
The kernel upgrade is just another update. If you have no security problems or no bugs, why bother?
