Pwnie Express-made security tools like the Power Pwn have mostly been stationary creatures that aren't much help when checking for network vulnerabilities on the move. There's now a more mobile version, though, in the Pwn Pad. The kit combines a Nexus 7 with USB-based Bluetooth, Ethernet and WiFi to gauge the security of a network beyond what Google's tablet can manage on its own. Ubuntu Linux is available in the Pwn Pad's software loadout, but part of the appeal comes from running a suite of tools in Android that aren't always available on the platform, such as Kismet. The $795 price will seem steep to those who bought the plain Nexus 7 at a quarter of the price, although it might end up being a discount for security gurus who want to leave bulkier tools -- even their laptops -- at home.
Penetration Testing Product Company Pwnie Express is Headed for RSA 2013 with New Products and an Exciting Video Contest
Pwnie Express Heads to RSA with the New Enterprise Pentesting Appliance (EPA) and Announces the Release of the Pwn Pad and an Exciting Video Contest.
The Enterprise Pentesting Appliance (EPA)
The EPA builds on the value proposition of our earlier products in that it's designed to make the work of security testers easier, faster and more comprehensive.
Berlin, Vermont (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
Pwnie Express is showing up at RSA2013 with a satchel full of pentesting goodies!
Pwnie Express is leading with the all new Enterprise Pentesting Appliance (EPA). " The EPA addresses the Advanced Persistent Threat" according to Jonathan Cran, CTO and Software Lead for Pwnie Express, "The EPA builds on the value proposition of our earlier products in that it's designed to make the work of security testers easier, faster and more comprehensive." Equipped with Pwn Plug innovation, the EPA enables coverage of a large number of remote offices, persistent pentesting functionality and centralized management capabilities. According to Cran, the EPA has a dual-core 2.66Ghz processor and 8GB of ram, more than enough to get the job done with Nessus, NeXpose, or other commercial scanners. Support for KVM also means Windows VMs with commercial Windows tools can be added. Pwnie Express has equipped the EPA with a 4G adapter, and both a wireless and bluetooth card that support monitor mode and injection (wireless). The EPA also supports common ZigBee, SDR and RFID radios.
Pwnie Express is also announcing the release of the industry-re-defining Pwn Pad, a tablet, loaded with wired and wireless pentesting tools. Adding to the robust line-up of tools that address the human threat (insider threats, social engineering and security awareness), the Pwn Pad provides professionals an unprecedented ease of use in evaluating wired and wireless networks. "Building and innovating devices like the PwnPad at Pwnie Express is what makes our work unique, valuable, and fun. It rocks" said Awk (Oliver Wies) the developer of the Pwn Pad and the Pwn Phone, a pentesting workhorse that has been around since Pwnie Express' inception. "The Pwn Pad contains bleeding edge tools for enterprise wired and wireless attacks not found on any other ARM pentesting devices" Wies said when asked to describe the product. The sleek form factor of the Pwn Pad makes it an ideal product choice when on the road or conducting a company or agency walk-through. This high-speed, lightweight device, featuring extended battery life and 7" of screen real estate offers pentesters an alternative never known before.
Pwnie Express' latest contest, "Don't Get Pwned – Pwnie Up" features a cyber security awareness video showing several security breaches occurring in less than 3 minutes. This fast-paced video, both educational and entertaining offers participants a chance to win a Pwn Plug. PwnieExpress will feature demos of the EPA and Pwn Pad at 11:30 and 1:30 on each day of the exhibit. The contest video is available for viewing both on line and at their booth (#2747) at RSA.2013.
