We have Windows 10 Pro and just got alerted on installing "Feature update to Windows 10, version 1709".  Reviewing "what's new" we noticed an area that says "Windows security features have been rebranded as Windows Defender security features".  

We don't use Windows Defender, never did since its inception to Windows.  Instead we use 3 products: Comodo Internet Security Premium (whch has Firewall and an Antivirus), Spy-Bot "Search & Destroy" and SUPERAntiSpyware.

With this new 1709 version "rebranded", should we consider uninstalling our security products and activate the rebranded Windows Defender security features?

Please advice
