Hi Davycrocket
Welcome to the Community Forums.
No, strictly speaking WSA is NOT a is specifically an antimalware application with a outbound firewall component, that needs to be used in conjunction with the Windows built in Firewal or a 3rd party firewall  to cover the inbound communications side of things.
Please see this KB Article on this element of WSA.
In terms of what WSA is please see this KB Article that compares WSA with Windows Defender.
Hope that helsp?
