Details:

By design, Microsoft Defender Antivirus is automatically disabled when a 3rd party antivirus is present on the client. We are making an update to improve security by ignoring a legacy setting, DisableAntiSpyware (which disables Microsoft Defender Antivirus). This change will impact clients running Windows 10, version 1903 or higher with Microsoft Defender AV platform version 4.18.2108.4 and higher with E3 and E5 licenses.
[Key points]

Timing: Rollout started to a small group of organizations. We will begin rolling out broadly starting in mid-November and expect to complete in mid-December.
Action: Review and assess impact for your organization
