Pwnie Express Launches the Pwn Pad, Takes Hackproofing on the Road

By Jon Fingas

The folks at security tools company Pwnie Express have built a tablet that can bash the heck out of corporate networks. Called the Pwn Pad, it’s a full-fledged hacking toolkit built atop Google’s Android operating system.

Pwnie Express will be selling the cool-looking hack machines — based on Google’s Nexus 7 tablets — for $795. They’ll be introduced at the RSA security conference in San Francisco next week, but Pwnie Express is also releasing the Pwn Pad source code, meaning that hackers can download the software and get it up and running on other types of Android phones and tablets.

Some important hacking tools have already been ported to Android, but Pwnie Express says that they’ve added some new ones. Most importantly, this is the first time that they’ve been able to get popular wireless hacking tools like Aircrack-ng and Kismet to work on an Android device.

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.

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. Pwnie Express 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.
