About SecLytics

Who is SecLytics

San Diego-based SecLytics uses advanced behavioral profiling and machine learning to power the only Predictive Threat Intelligence Platform on the market. SecLytics founders hail from a who’s who of tech and cybersecurity giants and came together with one key idea - there had to be a better way to protect networks and shut out cybercriminals. 

Augur Looks Into The Future To Protect You Today

 The Augur engine hunts adversaries in the wild during the setup stage, generating attack predictions on average 51+ days before they strike. Those predictions have been proven to be over 97% accurate and generate fewer than 0.01% false positives. Augur’s patent-pending technology can even tell an organization who specifically targets them in under 72 hours.  

With partners and customers in North America, EMEA and Japan, SecLytics can play a vital role in your overall cybersecurity strategy, improving your security posture, streamlining threat response, reducing SOC costs and keeping your networks safe from the bad guys.
