Improve Corporate Security Posture with Secure Online Desktop’s Posture Guard Service for Continuous Threat Validation

Cyber threats are evolving at an increasingly rapid pace. To effectively protect a company, it is essential to regularly assess and validate the effectiveness of security controls. Secure Online Desktop’s Posture Guard service allows you to do this continuously and automatically, providing a unified view to proactively identify and manage risks.

The Posture Guard Service

Posture Guard is the managed Breach Attack Simulation service offered by Secure Online Desktop, an Italian MSSP. The Posture Guard service allows you to:

  • Simulate real-world threats to identify and validate weaknesses in security controls
  • Provide vendor-specific mitigation recommendations to quickly close gaps
  • Map results to the MITRE ATT&CK framework to visualize threat coverage and prioritize actions

The service includes various modules to test network, endpoint, web application, threat detection, and more.

The Need for Continuous Validation

Periodic security validation is essential for several reasons:

Security controls are not out-of-the-box effective

They require ongoing customization and tuning to adapt to the specific environment. Regular testing helps identify gaps and make improvements.

Emerging threats can decrease control effectiveness

For example, new attack techniques can evade existing prevention signatures. Simulating real threats verifies that systems detect and prevent latest tactics.

Configuration drift creates blind spots

Undocumented infrastructure changes can introduce vulnerabilities. Periodic validation helps identify and address these issues.

Point-in-time testing has limited scope

Occasional penetration testing provides only a snapshot of security. Continuous validation reveals gaps as they emerge.

Posture Guard Service Features

SOD’s Posture Guard service offers various modules to comprehensively test security posture:

Posture Guard Security Control Validation

Simulates over 4000 threats, including malware and ransomware, to assess the effectiveness of firewalls, IPS, SIEM, EDR, and other security tools. Provides prevention signatures and detection rules to close gaps.

Posture Guard Attack Path Validation

Automatically discovers and validates high-risk attack paths in the internal environment that could allow attackers to compromise critical assets. Helps protect Active Directory.

Posture Guard Detection Rule Validation

Validates the effectiveness of detection rules in SIEM and EDR, providing insights to optimize threat detection and response capabilities.

Posture Guard Cloud Security Validation

Performs cloud security audits and attack simulations to identify configuration vulnerabilities and validate controls in AWS cloud environments.

Posture Guard for Compliance Enablement

The Posture Guard service can help demonstrate compliance with standards like PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, and NIST 800-53 by simulating incident response testing scenarios, sensitive data exfiltration, and validating security control effectiveness.


Continuous security validation is fundamental to proactively identify and manage risks. Secure Online Desktop’s Posture Guard service offers a comprehensive suite of simulated breach and attack tools to discover, validate, and close gaps in security controls. Posture Guard’s risk-based approach helps companies enhance their security posture and better protect their environment from known and unknown threats.
