Protection from malware?

I don't know anything about Android, only worked with Windows. Is there any way to safeguard from downloading malicious software onto the Vox?

Thanks for the info. I googled "Lookout for Android" and came up with a link to this:

http://www.getjar.com/Lookout-Mobile...with-Antivirus

Would you more experienced folks recommend this?
