Is Windows Defender in W10 sufficient protection?

My W10 computers have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed as well as Windows Defender.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware repeatedly detects one or more potentially unwanted objects which it signals as "Non-Malware Detected".

Does Windows Defender alone provide sufficient protection for a W10 computer which is kept fully updated?

If so I could limit Malwarebytes Anti-Malware  to occasional scans instead of routine scans daily at startup.

Experts please, your advice.

Yes, acceptable.
Yes, limit Malwarebytes to occasional scans. Do not have both set up as real time protection.

Defender in Windows 10 is a good product.

That said, my clients and I continue to use Symantec Endpoint Protection 14 which is also at / near the top of the heap. But for individuals and with good common sense, Defender will be fine.
