Re: Gating apps
True to a point.  Android is the primary target because its the largest & higher chance of success...smaller pool iphone lesser statistical chance of success.  If your designing malware which would you attack? this was mentioned at BHat 2012. These TOE evals will change based upon the obvious user base and easily exploitable CVE's.

Gating apps
Even though iOS has technically has had more vulnerabilities of late, 96% of mobile malware targets Android -- because it's so darn easy through the unregulated, ungated Google app store!  (On iOS, hackers have to resort to SMS and email phishing.)

If Google refuses to gate its apps, I think it's high time for the enterprise to finally put Android to bed.
