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

It’s been a minute, but 2021 is behind us, only for all of us to be gobsmacked by the start of 2022. In a world still under the vice grip of a global pandemic, it’s clear that we are firmly in the age of remote work that will continue to expand, along with the increasing use of digital collaboration tools within and across organizations.
Beyond threat actors continuing to exploit the pandemic and these digital tools, 2021 seemed like the year of supply
chain attacks — AKA — the tipping point for breaches caused by incidents that occur long before they implicate the actual, final target. Colonial Pipeline, Kaseya, Volkswagen/Audi, Mimecast, all found themselves facing supply chain attacks (and in some cases, costly ransomware payouts).
Those incidents illustrated just how vulnerable organizations are to their vendors’ or business partners’ (weaker) security measures. Which, in turn, led to CISOs demanding better solutions for preempting vendor compromise and financial fraud.
For Area 1, that demand resulted in a record-breaking year, with almost 10 billion messages processed (an 82% year-over-year growth compared to 2020), and over 40 Million campaigns identified and blocked.
Here’s hoping and wishing everyone a safe and secure 2022 – but most of all, a return to some semblance of normalcy in this year ahead.
If your organization is (or will be) one of Microsoft 365’s 50 million subscribers, it’s important to remain vigilant in 2022 against the low-volume, dangerous phishing attacks that can still slip through Microsoft 365 EOP/ATP.
As Gartner noted in its most recent Market Guide for Email Security, for Microsoft email users, “Advanced email security capabilities are increasingly being deployed as integrated cloud email security solutions rather than as a gateway.”
By integrating Area 1’s cloud-native solution directly into Microsoft 365, your organization will achieve:
Comprehensive protection against BEC, supply-chain attacks, compromised credentials and other advanced threats
Advanced detection, triage and response in a single platform
Dynamically scalable infrastructure to handle cloud traffic spikes
Here’s a development in the new year that shouldn’t keep you up at night — as long as you’re prepared: Deep language-based neural networks are being increasingly utilized by attackers to disseminate spam, misinformation, attacks, and fake news.
Our CTO and co-founder, Phil Syme, explains in this on-demand ISSA webinar:
A primer on text generation using state-of-the-art neural networks
How novel text generation neural networks are creating phishing and spam emails
Detection techniques for neural-network generated malicious emails
