Post Is a software firewall necessary these days?

After many new computers I lost touch with ZoneAlarm and recently noticed it's still quite active. This brought to mind the thought that I figure with the wide-spread use of routers these days (as well as a much improved Windows Defender in both Windows 8 & 10) a software firewall is no longer required. This I figure would be especially true if your anti-virus program includes a firewall.

Is my thinking correct or would adding a software firewall, like ZoneAlarm Free, still make sense even if you use a router, have Windows Defender active (in Windows 10) and have a firewall as part of your anti-virus (in my case Kaspersky Total Security 2017) ?
