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

Tax Day is almost here, and many of us may still be busy this weekend gathering copious amounts of necessary paperwork and submitting our returns.
However, we are not the only ones hard at work. Cyber threat actors are also busy– planning and executing large scale tax fraud threat campaigns. For example, the FBI’s IC3 has previously warned of compromised email accounts being used to request W2 forms or fraudulent wire transfers; attackers also leverage well-known financial and tax-related brands to deliver phishing campaigns that skirt traditional email defenses.
There are some tips to stay vigilant during this time. First, fortify your existing email defenses. Second, encourage your employees to be extra vigilant against tax related or IRS messages. And remember – if that refund message looks too good to be true, it probably is.
