"Android is by far the most popular mobile operating system in the world today, with a market share of more than 75 percent in the third quarter, according to industry analysts," said Avi Turiel, director of threat research and market analysis at Commtouch. "Its popularity makes it a natural target for cybercriminals of all kinds. The alarming growth rate also demonstrates that the Android platform is still regarded as an easy target. Effective protective measures are urgently needed. With its Mobile Security for Android, Commtouch offers a solution that combines antivirus and Web Security and can be integrated into offerings from carriers, MDM providers, device manufacturers and application developers."
