“For almost all threat models…they are nearly identical in terms of their platform-level capabilities,” he said. “In the long term, the open ecosystem of Android is going to put it in a much better place,” claimed Ludwig.

Ludwig also touted Google’s Safety Net which also scans through 400 million devices every day and 6 billion apps per day. According to Ludwig this means that less than 1 percent Android devices have malware on them.

“At this point we still don’t have any confirmed instances of exploitation in the wild,” he said talking about the StageFright malware issue, which he believed was blown out of proportion.

Android’s head of security Ludwig also  believed there was room for improvement especially when this is comes down to Android updates. Android’s head of security Ludwig also believes Google and its carrier and smartphone OEM partners can better collaborate to provide timely updates especially when they are related to security patches.
