- En materia de seguridad, ¿con cuál me quedo? ¿Android o iOS? (Interviene Sorin Mustaka, experto en seguridad IT de Avira)
“”No mobile platform is fully secure as both are almost closed to security software developers.
The cybercriminals have no ethical barriers when it comes to develop and distribute software.
They can root the devices, use social engineering to spread the apps, don’t need to use the official stores, request a lot of permissions so that they achieve their goal in the easiest way and with the maximum effect.
The security software developers on the other hand side have to obey strict ethical rules, must use only official APIs and must go through the entire process of certifying and approving an app in the official stores.
This is true for both Apple and Android. As long as they try to make the OS secure using “security through obscurity” (preventing the developers to use official methods to protect the devices) , it will not be possible to offer security comparable to that on Windows for these devices.””
