Philip Schiller is the senior vice president of worldwide marketing at Apple and a prominent figure in Appleâ€™s public presentations. Yesterday, he has tweeted a link to Ciscoâ€™s 2014 Annual Security Report which shows that mobile malware is becoming much more present on Android compared to any other platform. The report says the following:
According to Ciscoâ€™s data, 99% of the web malware targeted Android last year and 71% of Android users came into contact with web-related malware. This number is much lower with iOS users, at only 14%. So, itâ€™s obvious why Schiller has tweeted this. Last year, Schiller tweeted a link to another security report that said 79% of malware targeted Android in 2012. The Cisco report barely mentions Apple, Mac or the iOS platform in its report, which is a good thing and means that Apple manages to protect the security of your iOS devices against malware.
