Pwnie Express, founded in Barre, Vermont in 2009, specializes in penetration cyber-security testing hardware. The
company’s flagship product, the Pwn Plug, is the first-to-market penetration testing drop box platform. Penetration
testing (pentesting) tests a network’s vulnerabilities by having an authorized person attempt to break into the network.
Penetration testing safeguards organizations by identifying vulnerabilities so that they may be managed proactively. It
provides due diligence and compliance for regulators, shareholders and customers. The Pwn Plug provides remote
security testing of internal corporate facilities and governmental agencies, allowing testing over the internet and
eliminating travel expenses.

We are deeply appreciative for the outpouring of support we have received from the conference coordinators and
attendees, many of whom are our initial adopters”, said Dave Porcello, CEO of Pwnie Express. Mark Hughes, Director
of Marketing and Sales said, “We are proud to have Pwnie Express back at SOURCE Boston for a second year.
Their innovative products have changed the landscape of pentesting” said Christien Rioux, founder of the SOURCE
