Companies invest in cybersecurity tools, yet they still fall victim to attacks. 

Why? Unintentional changes in their security controls. These security coverage gaps leave their network defense teams blind to attack activity and their customers vulnerable to devastating breaches.
BDO Digital’s managed attack simulation and security validation services proactively provide visibility into these blind spots. This provides you with real-time operational assurance that your security program is working as expected. By delivering continuous simulations of known cyber threats including malware, ransomware, and supply chain attacks, we test your organization’s resilience against real-world cyber threats to secure your company’s future. Coupled with BDO Digital Active Protect, Active Assure delivers industry leading comprehensive cybersecurity coverage to your organization. 

Security Control Blind Spots

Unintentional changes in security controls are often the main reason why companies with great cybersecurity measures still fall victim to attacks. These changes often occur internally without the knowledge of their managed security provider, and the breach is devastating to the entire organization. 

Examples of security control blind spots:

Technical Controls

Security products and tools misconfigured, out of date, missing / not installed

Administrative Controls

Personnel decisions leading to improper access, unauthorized changes, response plan failure

BDO Digital is committed to finding these security blind spots and helping you remove them before they can be exploited.

Control Vision

Real-Time Security Control Validation

Most MDR services do not have a consistent way to functionally test their customers' security controls to validate they can detect and respond to attacks in real-time. We do. Think of it like this, your home security system provider has no way to know if your door and window sensors are working. Wouldn’t you sleep better at night if they came to your home every morning and checked all your doors and windows to confirm they would get an alert if a break-in was to occur?

BDO Digital provides this type of proactive end-to-end testing of your cybersecurity measures via our Active Assure solution. We use detection and alerting pipelines daily to confirm we have complete visibility into your environment and provide you with reassurance that your controls will work and can immediately respond to real-world attacks.

Every day we test and validate the following:

  • All detection tools are communicating and functioning correctly
  • No harmful control changes have been made on your end or ours
  • Alerts have reached our team to ensure immediate response
  • We are meeting our responsibilities per our service level agreement
