Windows 10 fails to detect McAfee ENS 10.6.1 running and Windows Defender kicks in

Widows 10 fails to detect McAfee ENS 10.6.1 running and windows defender kicks in. This is affecting us due to the fact that our VPN client does a host check and will only allow systems through if McAfee is running and definitions are up to date.

If we click "Turn On", that is all it takes to fix the issue and VPN connection works normally, but after a couple restarts, the system will revert to this state again forcing the user to manually hit "Turn ON".

All ENS modules look "enabled" in the console and there arent any other indications of an issue other than Windows Defender being turned ON and the "security providers" showing that shown in the screenshot.

Windows Version 10.0.17763 Build 17763
OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro

ENS 10.6.1 July Update (but also observed in vanilla 10.6.1)
Threat prevention:

This wasn't happening before and wondering if other people are seeing the same and if there is a solution.
