New Feature - Augur Predictions in the News
The need for more visibility and easier access to confirmation context about our predictions was one of the most consistent requests from our customer base last year. In response, our product development team designed and developed a powerful new feature that helps Incident Responders and Threat Hunters get the most out of the Augur platform by showcasing the power and relevance of SecLytics’ patented predictive intelligence. We tested the approach with a few key partners and the response was very positive, so now we are rolling out Augur Predictions in the News.
Augur Predictions in the News surfaces news stories, reports, and tweets that focus on threats predicted by Augur and later confirmed by third-party security researchers. The key benefit of this new feature is that the news stories provide valuable additional context for threats Augur has identified. But the feature also provides valuable visual validation of the volume, criticality and lead time provided by Augur predictions – which is important for SOC managers who need to demonstrate the value and relevance of Augur’s predictive intelligence and automated enforcement.
Your Augur Predictions in the News
You’ll find Predictions in the News in two sections of the dashboard. In the Overview section, you’ll find a customized selection of reports that deal only with activity detected on your network.
By clicking on the IP address at the bottom, you can get details of activity on your network, including first and last seen, incoming vs. outgoing, as well as a list of internal IPs involved, a threat score, and links to other threat hunting resources. And of course, if you have enabled Augur enforcement automations you’ll have been protected from the moment the predictions were made.
Global Predictions in the News
If you’re interested in getting an overview of predictions that have recently been confirmed via other security reports, you can head to the Investigate page. Here you’ll find not only a list of all the latest confirmed predictions but also get direct access to the news stories, reports and tweets where these threats have been confirmed.
By clicking on the Related Predictions link at the bottom left of each news story, you can go to the IP details page. This page provides context on which threat profile the IP is associated with, threat identifiers, threat category, BGP information, Who Is information and a timeline from prediction to detection to third-party confirmation. From there, you push on to look at intel on the CIDR the IP belongs to and the threat actor profile it’s associated with.

We get it. Predictive threat intel sounds too good to be true, and you want to know our predictions are legit.

Proactive Defense for Better Protection
Reactive threat intelligence solutions only protect against documented threats. Augur’s predictive intelligence looks beyond current threats. It leverages machine learning and artificial intelligence to model threat actor behavior, identifying the build-up of attack infrastructure an average of 51 days before an attack launches. And with a false positive rate of less than 0.01%, you can trust Augur’s predictions; as demonstrated, they provide a valuable layer of proactive protection. Our unique predictive threat intel combines with Augur’s enforcement orchestration and automation and rich threat hunting environment to improve security and streamline SOC operations.
