Android vendors have recently been stepping up efforts to convince users that the platform is secure enough for enterprise use.
Security solutions such as the Android Knox platform have been presented as proof that the mobile platform can operate in the business, without any fear of data loss or network infection.
Despite the best efforts of vendors, however, malware levels are higher than ever. A recent report from F-Secure shows that Android malware accounts for nearly 80 percent of all mobile malware threats and is on the rise.
The climbing malware volumes show that Android remains the most popular target for malware developers and, with its variety of both reputable and shady app stores distributing software, the easiest platform to get a virus on.
Those factors could continue to harm Android in the eyes of executives and administrators wary of account thefts and data breaches.
This could pose an opportunity for at least one struggling vendor. BlackBerry is hanging by a thread, but the company has one very compelling argument when it comes to platform security. The BlackBerry Platform, along with its accompanying server system, is known for being easy to secure and difficult for attackers to penetrate.
If the malware crisis continues, RIM could get back on its feet, at the expense of enterprise-hungry Android vendors and carriers.
