I believe Zemana might be your only choice.

Thread title seems to be misleading, as there is no "HerdProtect for Android", therefore how can you ask for a "HerdProtect alternative for Android".

Is Zemana Mobile Antivirus multi-engine as others claim? Have you tried Security apps that run without real-time protection (ie. Malwarebytes)?

Did you try the mostly bug-free VirusTotal Mobile (by FunnyCat):
VirusTotal Mobile - Android Apps on Google Play

If you do not download Apps from Unknown Sources and 3rd Party App Store, you should be generally safe - in most cases.

My apologies for assuming that Zemana Android works similarly to that of its windows counterpart, it's not.
Go with @Spawn 's advice, as he is much much experienced and wiser than me.
