Our mission is making INBOX.CLEAN™ a reality: stop phishing attacks — the root cause of 95% of breaches — before they reach users. Get the only solution that preemptively stops Business Email Compromise, malware, ransomware and other advanced threats by discovering and eliminating them before they cause damage.
Email Security has certainly come a long way. With cloud messaging now the standard versus the legacy on premise approach (Lotus Notes anyone?) the strategy of securing these clouds has also experienced a revolution.
Area 1’s cloud-native SaaS solution supports three key use cases: preemptive anti-phishing across all threat vectors (email, web, social, network); cloud email security / SEG replacement; and phishing security automation for SOC teams.
Area 1 is a Microsoft Certified Partner and a Google Cloud Security Technology Partner of the Year. We also integrate with a number of SIEM, SOAR, SEG and firewall technology providers to fit your unique infrastructure. Learn More

What’s New with Area 1 Horizon?
Hello again, Area 1 family! Your friendly neighborhood Product team is here with another installment of the Area 1 Product Update blog. As the weather changes, so does our Horizon product!
Since we’re in the fall months, I thought it would be fitting to discuss the transitions that are happening within the Horizon product (which — by the way — has just been recognized in the latest Gartner Market Guide for Email Security … more on that to come!).
If you recall from our Summer 2021 product update, our key theme was visibility. As we have our sights set on the end of the year, let’s see how our product will look by the time we ring in the New Year.
See what I did there? Puns, I’ve got ‘em…
On to the updates!
New Ways to Access Phishing Risk Assessments
First, let’s begin with highlighting some of the recent features we’ve added to the portal.
We’ve added parent accounts to be able to generate Phishing Risk Assessment (PRA) reports on their child accounts. This gives our customers with large environments (typically, over XX number of email users) the ability to run a solid health check on their sub-domains.
With the PRA reports, email administrators can get an in-depth breakdown of just how effective Horizon has been at getting their organization INBOX.CLEAN™ — free of the threats that cause 95% of breaches. Customers will also see where improvements to the overall mail architecture could be made.
The Evolution of End-to-End Email Threat Protection and Remediation
Last time around we announced Post Delivery Response (PDR). PDR is part of our continuous email security approach, which includes pre-delivery and at-delivery threat protection, to help security teams free up valuable time and resources.
We are happy to report that Area 1’s PDR will be fully live by the end of November.
So for Area 1 customers who have retraction enabled, you will be able to auto retract messages that have been flagged as Post Delivery Response. You can learn more about the benefits of built-in, post-delivery protection (Message Retraction) and the full spectrum of Area 1’s ability to address threats within and beyond the inbox here.
In the spirit of PDR, Phish Submission Response (PSR) will also be live in November. Area 1 Security’s PSR is the auto retraction of submitted phishing messages that have had disposition changes based on the resubmission.
Updates to Post Delivery Response and Phish Submission Response in Area 1 Horizon
What’s Coming Next?
Finally, before the end of 2021, there will also be a whole new way to interact with Area 1 Horizon! We will be launching the biggest functional update to the portal that we’ve ever created. And it is all part of our mission to keep every organization’s inboxes clean and free of threats, 24/7. We can’t wait to show it to you!
Stay tuned next month and see the future!
