Do we need security software for tablets?

Healer
Be they iPad or Samsung, how are the chances of getting infected? Could we install the same security software for desktop on to the tablets? Which are the best pieces of security software for tablets including those free ones?

That sounds like overkill. I currently use avast which provides remote wipe, tracking, and you can rename it to whatever you want to hide that it is installed. It will also take a remote picture through the front camera to try to catch the theif. It is free. AVG also offers a free solution for mobile devices. BTW I use android and love it!
