Pwnie Express Announces Headquarters move to Boston, Massachusetts

Penetration Testing and Network Vulnerability Assessment Company to Grow Employee Base

November 26, 2014

Pwnie Express, the leading provider of rapid deployment remote security assessment products, today announced that it has relocated its headquarters to Boston’s Innovation District.

The move comes as the company’s recently appointed Chief Executive Officer Paul Paget seeks to continue to quickly expand the company’s employee base to meet growing customer demand.

“I am delighted that Pwnie Express is choosing to locate its headquarters in Boston’s Innovation District,” said Mayor Menino. “This cutting edge network security firm joins the more than 200 new companies that have made the South Boston Waterfront home in the past three years.”

Pwnie Express provides cost effective, rapid deployment security assessment products comprised of innovative sensors that make it incredibly easy to evaluate risk in remote and distributed environments. These hard-to-reach distributed areas of an organization provide today’s high-risk attack paths for cyber adversaries and rogue devices.

“We could not have selected a more ideal location for Pwnie Express’s headquarters,” Paget said. “Boston is home to the world’s largest startup accelerator, Mass Challenge, and more than 35 colleges and universities. I look forward to having access to some of the best engineering, sales and marketing talent bar none.”

More than a 1000 enterprises across verticals including retail, finance, health, and manufacturing as well as service providers and government organizations rely on Pwnie Express to know who and what is accessing their networks. Pwnie Express’ products come in a variety of form factors including the Pwn Pad, Pwn Plug, Power Pwn and Pwnie’s groundbreaking enterprise Citadel product thatprovides unprecedented visibility via a centralized console assimilating the data from the various devices.

Pwnie Express’s Research and Development (R&D) and manufacturing operations will remain in Vermont. The Boston headquarters are located at 253 Summer Street.

Pwn-007: International Pentesting Case Study

By Martin Bos & Eric Milam

Last month, the guys over at Pentest Geek -Martin Bos (purehate) and Eric Milam (brav0hax) – published a tale of international intrigue that would make James Bond proud. Their article, Checkmate With a Pwn, showed what a couple of wiley pentesters and their trusty Pwnie Express gear can do.

In this post, Martin and Eric recount their international pentesting exploits in detail. They describe how they gained access to the facility using a pretexted SE scenario and then were able to gain access to the physical and wireless networks in short order.

“By the time we were ready to go to the next location for physical testing, we already had domain admin accounts, email accounts, our name in the global address book and a nice write up about each of us on the customer’s intranet page. In other words, if anyone were to look us up, we were legitimate employees with the information to back up our pretext scenario.”

And they had some nice things to say about us, too:

“After using these devices from pwnie express and pushing them to limits we didn’t think they could reach, we can definitely say they far exceeded our original expectations. Even though it was fun to play with the tools, pwnie’s functionality clearly sets them apart from toys. We’re looking forward to the next opportunity, this time with a new improved pwn plug r2. We are grateful to the team at pwnie express for creating these tools and hope others can find them as incredibly useful as we have.”

We want to thank Martin and Eric for sharing their story.
