Does a password do anything to secure the device from remote attacks?

So I've been wondering this for a long time, and can't really seem to find an answer.

Does enabling a lock screen password do ANYTHING to help protect the device from threats? Other than someone with physical access, obviously. Would it make installing malware or exploiting a security flaw any more difficult? Assume the device in question is not rooted, if that makes any difference.

Thanks guys.
