Barre, VT – February 29, 2012.
The world’s largest cyber security conference concluded last week in San
Francisco. Attending and exhibiting for the first time, was Vermont start-up Pwnie Express.
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 deeply appreciate the tremendous outpouring of support that we have enjoyed as a result of attending
the RSA Conference. Our products are being well received and we are gaining market traction in the
pentesting drop box market space by the hour!,” said Dave Porcello, CEO of Pwnie Express. Mark Hughes,
Director of Marketing and Sales said, “We feel that the value proposition is clear in this product. Remote
internal pentesting travel costs are eliminated and pentesting capabilities are extended to evaluate physical
security, data exfiltration and network access control. Game-changer.”
Pwnie Express’ products have been incorporated into the cyber-security toolboxes of over one hundred
security service providers, several Fortune 50 companies and various federal agencies. They have recently
been featured in The information Systems Security Association (ISSA) Journal, Wired, Ars Technica, PC
Magazine, and Slashdot.
Attendees at the RSA conference included information security professionals from around the world.
