    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    It's not necessary to have any virus protection whatsoever on a stock iPad because of Apple's sandboxed environment.
    Jailbroken iPads are also protected as long as recommended Cydia apps and tweaks are used.

    The IPad Forum is a community of members from all walks of life and from all over the world coming together to share our experiences and to help each other learn about this wonderful piece of technology the Ipad.

If then you cannot find the answer you are seeking then by all means post your question. There are many friendly and informed members here only too willing to help you.
