iOS is safer than Android but only as safe as Apple/App store oversight can be. You can hardly get apps on to a device if you are a registered developer, much less through a backdoor malware method. :)

Android based systems are another matter and I would definitely think security software would be a good thing on those devices. The fortunate thing about Android is that the ecosphere isn't homogenous thus limiting the spread of malware across platforms. If anyone ever does break iOS certification, Apple users are well and truly .... compromised.
