    It was Android Police I think that did a whole series of reviews on mobile security apps - about a dozen and a half different apps in all - and Cerberus came out on top.

    Keep in mind that most people would discourage you from using the antivirus functions of any security app.

    Edit: AP also really likes Avast.

    I use cerberus.
    It works very well on the Nexus. My favorite is the 'take picture' function where activating it makes the screen go white for illumination. As soon as the person using it touches the screen, it snaps a picture and mails it to a destination controlled via the web interface.
    All the email functions can be done using an address that is not tied to the phone which is awesome because if the phone is lost, the person on the other end can't delete any evidence and you are also free to change your password without affecting the app's ability to do work.
    If you're rooted, Cerberus can also be installed into the system recovery so that it will survive a factory wipe and restore. Very cool.

    The only downside is that if you flash a new rom, cerberus gets wiped out and will need to be reinstalled to both the phone, and the system image if you want it to survive a restore. Not bad at all IMHO.
