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.
A cybersecurity analyst or engineer wakes up every morning, flips on their laptop, and defends others from attacks, responding at the speed of lightning to beat cyber villains, and with unmatched adaptability and agility stops cyber villains from getting into your inboxes and organizations – all while calling it just a normal day at the office.
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

Practical Tips for Preventing a Future SolarWinds-Like Breach
As the number of SolarWinds breach investigations grow, so too does the related “news fatigue.” Instead of reading up on new fallout costs and politicians’ opinions, you may find it more useful to get answers to questions like:
How do you detect if a vendor’s been compromised, earlier in the attack cycle?
Which security techniques can I apply today to prevent supply chain-originated breaches?
Can Microsoft 365 block partner account takeover messages?
To answer these questions, check out the 2021 guide to preventing supply chain phishing — the cause of most supply chain breaches — here.
These insights are based on an analysis of $300M+ in supply chain-based fraud Area 1 blocked last year. If organizations don’t take immediate action to prevent supply chain attacks through email security now, that figure will only exponentially increase in 2021.

Phishing for Divorce (and other Musings)
Would you open an email from a legitimate law firm proclaiming to serve you divorce papers?
The email is certainly intriguing — and, as a phishing message — very targeted (not to mention, cruel). It also serves as the most clever phishing lure our co-founder, Oren Falkowitz, has ever seen.
Check out Oren’s recent interview on “The Business Brew” podcast to hear more of his musings on topics ranging from phishing to startup culture to Zoom fatigue, and more.
