MicroWorld Technologies Inc., a pioneer in the field of cybersecurity, has launched eScan Version 22 - Cyber Vaccine Edition, a comprehensive cybersecurity solution aimed at empowering consumers, enterprises and governments across the world in their fight against digital malice.
Equipped with cutting-edge technologies, MicroWorld's latest offering aims to reinvent cybersecurity in the face of an ever-evolving threat landscape, especially in light of the ongoing pandemic. The cyber vaccine edition is devised to protect users against all kinds of malicious software, cyber-attacks along with spam, and can protect the digital systems from any new digital viruses.
In a major surveillance campaign that has brought the Orwellian nightmare of prominent personalities to life, using the Pegasus spyware has been reported. Pioneers of futuristic cybersecurity technology, MicroWorld Technologies have assured its current and potential clientele, that their Mobile Security solution that runs on both Android and iOS platforms is capable of detecting and blocking Pegasus spyware along with similar digital threats.
The spyware has been used to snoop on their victims to gather sensitive information by exploiting undiscovered vulnerabilities or bugs in Android or iOS platforms, unlike its earlier versions that used the spear-phishing technique. Pegasus is capable of exploiting bugs in iMessage, allowing it to gain access to millions of iPhones through a backdoor.
Leaders in the cybersecurity domain, MicroWorld Technologies have assured their clients and organizations across the world that security solutions under their flagship brand eScan have the necessary capability to detect and respond to the recent Kaseya VSA cyber-attack that has crippled nearly a million systems to date.
Kaseya VSA was recently hit with a crippling supply chain ransomware attack by the notorious REvil ransomware gang. In order to access the data of what they claim to be over one million systems, the REvil gang, also known as Sodinokibi, has requested for $70 million or around INR 520 crore ransom. Hundreds of organizations that were using the software provided by Kaseya VSA were affected as a result of this attack.
Cybersecurity leaders and home to the brands eScan, MailScan and Nemasis, MicroWorld Group of Companies have announced the promotion of Ms. Shweta Thakare to the position of Vice President – Global Sales & Marketing. Effective immediately, she will be responsible for handling the marketing strategies and promotions of all of MicroWorld's cybersecurity brands, propagating the brand message and strengthening their presence across the globe with compelling sales. She will continue to be intimately involved in day-to-day operations, but with a concentrated focus on overall business strategy and sales opportunities that will drive the company's long-term success.
