Diving deep into it Sunil Kriplani, Senior Vice President (Global Sales and Marketing), eScan opines, “The penetration of mobile malware is marginally low when compared with the PC based malware. Recently there has been an increase in the take-down of Fake Apps existing on Playstore by Google. Mobile/Android-based malware are existing due to the sheer fact that the policies of Google Playstore aren’t as stringent as those of the Apple Store. Furthermore, side-loading of Android-based apps is relatively very easy when compared with iOS, hence Android-based malware shall thrive and continue to grow for years to come.”
