ESDS Software Solution Pvt Ltd announced the launch of MTvScan 2.0, the latest version of its popular ‘Malware Threats & Vulnerability Scanner’ already in use by India’s leading public-sector banks and other e-commerce websites. The new version is equipped with deep-scanning technology that is designed to prevent smartphone-based phishing scams, similar to the recent Jet Airways free tickets phishing scam.

The first-generation MTvScan from ESDS has been adopted by close to 10,000 high-traffic websites belonging to banks like State Bank of India, Canara Bank, UBI, SIDBI, and MUDRA Bank, government departments and enterprises like HCL and Tata group of companies.

Piyush Somani, founder and MD of ESDS, said: “Phishing and hacking attacks have evolved significantly over time, and have necessitated the invention of ‘deep-scanning’ technologies that power the MTvScan 2.0. The new version makes the Enterprise websites hack-proof and is designed to assure full cyber-security to the digital presences of Indian banks, government departments and large enterprises, as it intelligently identifies vulnerabilities in applications or databases.”

MTvScan 2.0 can reliably tackle modern phishing attacks. The recent JetAirways ‘free tickets’ scam circulating on Whatsapp was first caught by MTvScan, which immediately notified all affected users to get their passwords changed if they had opened the spoof link. The tool detects more than 90 types of threats and vulnerabilities in popular online web applications.

Nearly all of these vulnerabilities can be exploited by hackers to hack into a website or secure database remotely. Further, MTvScan also tracks new domain registrations and go-live of lookalike websites and notifies CISOs about any possible phishing attacks. The unique features of MTvScan include Content Monitoring, URL monitoring and Phishing attacks prediction.
