Cisco AMP and Windows Defender

We recently attended a "test drive" class for Cisco AMP where they mentioned that AMP was approved by Microsoft as a 3rd party AV client that should disable windows defender. I've linked the KB below. We have several test machines with AMP deployed that also have windows defender enabled by default in Windows 10. Does anyone have any insight into this?

In order to replace Windows defender, the AMP policy for the endpoints must include the optional Tetra engine so that the ClamAV signatures will be downloaded and in effect.

 

Once you do that, Windows Defender Security Center will indicate that Virus and threat Protection is being provided by Cisco AMP for Endpoints.

Does this disable Windows Defender completely?
