Pwnie Express Launches Pwn Pulse SaaS Platform in Europe to Automatically Detect the Wireless and Wired Devices Putting European Businesses and Critical Infrastructure at Risk

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jan 5, 2016) - Pwnie Express, providers of real-time threat detection of all the wireless and wired devices in and around workplaces, today announced European availability of its Pwn Pulse SaaS platform. European organizations can now detect rogue, misconfigured, and unauthorized devices, from phones and printers to malicious access points, across wired and wireless spectrums. Visibility from Pwn Pulse helps European companies more comprehensively protect critical business infrastructure while preserving data privacy.

Demand for Wireless/Wired Device Detection Fuels Pwnie Express Growth
According to the ISACA European 2015 IT Risk/Reward Barometer, 70 percent of European business and IT professionals consider it a medium to high likelihood that a company will be hacked through an internet-connected device. As bring your own device (BYOD) and Internet of Things (IoT) devices continue to proliferate in workplaces across the EU, 51 percent believe their IT department is not aware of all of the connected devices within the organization, and one in three do not have a policy in place to address BYOD at all -- let alone discover and analyze the multitude of devices in and around their networks. These devices can be inherently malicious or can be used as gateways into the networks of these organizations, including critical networks used by utilities, financial institutions, government organizations, and others.

Committed to ensuring the highest level of customer data privacy, Pwnie Express has deployed an on-continent instance of Pwn Pulse to meet newly heightened customer data policies as dictated by the EU. Pwnie Express, as a committed trusted security partner, has instituted the capability to store all EU customer data exclusively in the EU. This helps European organizations further reduce privacy risks while helping to ensure regulatory compliance.

Pwnie CEO, "The unique ability to detect and fingerprint these devices is driving global demand for Pwnie's device detection platform."

"With the rise in connected devices around the world, organizations globally need to better understand the threat of connected devices in, and around, their organizations," said Paul Paget, CEO, Pwnie Express. "It starts with full visibility of all the devices and then real-time analysis and auditing of each device to determine which are rogue, misconfigured, or unauthorized. Pwn Pulse was purpose-built to help security teams not only detect and monitor these devices, but then prioritize security response, reduce alert fatigue, and provide situational intelligence to implement real-time remediation."
