Google Adds Built-In Malware Detection

Google announced a few days ago that it would offer built in malware detection in Android 4.2.  This actually strikes me as a bit contradictory since they often said their platform had no malware issues.  Regardless, it’s good to see Google add these types of features as it adds another layer of protection for Android.  Will their solution be the end all?  I doubt it.  Even if they somehow manage to stop all app malware (that would be impressive), there are still many other threats to end users that lie outside of apps.   Their solution used in conjunction with other security solutions though will only further protect users, enterprises and their data.
