    No opinion really other than this: neither will offer much beyond some level of reactionary protectiony from past viruses but little in the way of protection from undiscovered threats. Since malware is pulled from the market when discovered, this is a bit of a security blanket or security theater -- however this is my opinion, and some disagree with me on this.

    That software may however offer other worthwhile security features (such as remote locking your phone if stolen) which are nice. I'm not sure if they offer options for encrypting data.

    Mostly though, with regards to malware, you should learn as much as you can about best practices and how to be safe and find trusted apps and developers.
    - Use the community to find good apps.
    - Dont ever run warez (especially on a phone).
    - Don't download apps from shady 3rd party markets. (Motoroloa, Google, Verizon, Archos, Amazon and SlideMe are considered mostly reputible markets)
    - Always check the ratings, and permissions, learn what the ratings mean, read the comments
    - Check all of those on every update you do of an app.

    ^This should be your primary goal, if you go the software route, it's just an added layer on top of that. I have a more in-depth guide on app security but I'm not sure I'm allowed to link to it, but you can find it on google by searching for my username "alostpacket"
