What Is A SOC?

SOC stands for “Security Operations Center”, a highly secure facility maintained with the expresspurpose of detecting, protecting and responding to cyber-security threats.

Why You Need A SOC:

  • Because a Firewall and IDS are not enough
  • Integration of Office 365 and Azure security services
  • Nucleus of all information security operations provides:
    • Continuous Prevention
    • Protection
    • Detection
    • Response capabilities against threats, remotely exploitable vulnerabilities and real time incidents on your networks.
  • Works with CIRT to create comprehensive infrastructure for managing security operations
  • This is an additional service that enhances your Office 365 and Azure cloud services to protect your digital assets

KAMIND IT SOC Benefits/Functions:

  • Multifactor Authentication is employed across our infrastructure to control identity and access management.
  • Non-Persistent Administration Using just-in-time (JIT) and just-enough administrator (JEA) privileges to engineering staff managing infrastructure and services. This provides a unique set of credentials for elevated access that automatically expires after a pre-designated duration
  • Proper Hygiene is rigorously maintained through up-to-date, anti-malware software and adherence to strict patching and configuration management.
  • KAMIND IT’s Malware Protection Center’s team identifies and works with Microsoft on the submission of new malware signatures. These signatures are available to Microsoft and KAMIND IT’s clients that are using Microsoft anti-malware solutions
  • KAMIND IT’s Security Development Lifecycle is used to harden all applications, online services and products, and to routinely validate its effectiveness through penetration testing and vulnerability scanning.
  • Threat Modeling and Attack Surface Analysis ensures that potential threats are assessed, exposed aspects of the service are evaluated, and the attack surface is minimized by restricting services or eliminating unnecessary functions
  • Classifying Data according to its sensitivity—high, medium or low business impact—and taking the appropriate measures to protect it, including encryption in transit and at rest, and enforcing the principle of least-privilege access provides additional protection (varies by security plan).
  • Awareness Training that fosters a trust relationship between our clients and the security team to develop an environment where users will report incidents and anomalies without fear of repercussion


  • Monitoring Network and Physical Environments 24x7x365 for potential cybersecurity events. Behavior profiling based on usage patterns and an understanding of unique threats to our services.
  • Identity and Behavioral Analytics are developed to highlight abnormal activity.
  • Machine Learning software tools and techniques are routinely used to discover and flag irregularities.
  • Advanced Analytical Tools and Processes are deployed to further identify anomalous activity and innovative correlation capabilities. This enables highly-contextualized detections to be created from the enormous volumes of data in near real-time.
  • Automated Software-Based Processes that are continuously audited and evolved for increased effectiveness.
  • Data Scientists and Security Experts routinely work side-by-side to address escalated events that exhibit unusual characteristics requiring further analysis of targets. They can then determine potential response and remediation efforts.


  • Automated Response Systems using risk-based algorithms to flag events requiring human intervention.
  • Well-Defined, Documented and Scalable Incident Response Processes within a continuous improvement model helps to keep us ahead of adversaries by making these available to all responders.
  • Subject Matter Expertise across our teams, in multiple security areas, including crisis management, forensics, and intrusion analysis, and deep understanding of the platforms, services and applications operating in our cloud datacenters provides a diverse skill set for addressing incidents.
  • Wide Enterprise Searching across both cloud, hybrid and on-premises data and systems to determine the scope of the incident.
  • Deep Forensic Analysis, for major threats, are performed by specialists to understand incidents and to aid in their containment and eradication.
  • KAMIND IT’s Security Software Tools, Automation and Hyper-Scale Cloud Infrastructure enable our security experts to reduce the time to detect, investigate, analyze, respond, and recover from cyberattacks.
