The times are long gone when Penetration Testers needed several laptops and equipment to perform onsite Security assessments. Nowadays our consultants travel light with just a Google Nexus Tablet or with only an Android phone. As technology advances, mobile Penetration Testing toolkits flood the market (both open source and commercial).

As a Penetration Testing company, we have invested in both the phones and tablets from Pwnie-Express. Someone could argue that all the tools are free and it’s much cheaper to build yourself? Yes and no. For individuals with a lot of time at hand, loading the right tools onto a tablet or a phone makes sense. For businesses a few tablets give back the ROI within the first Pentest.
