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

The vaccine is finally here. And so are the attackers…
The Department of Homeland Security and FBI are officially warning of cyber fraud as the COVID-19 vaccines near FDA approval. And we’re already starting to see this new twist in phishing land in inboxes.
The vaccine scams will ultimately follow the standard COVID-19 hacker behaviors – preying on fear, near-flawless impersonation of a trusted organization, and — ultimately — dissemination of malware or ransomware with disastrous impact.
But what’s different in this phase is our patience. It’s waning. Your employees are excited (possibly desperate) for a pandemic-free life. And there is no better ransomware target than an emotional and distracted employee.
As cybersecurity professionals, we must remain extra-diligent. And we must do everything possible to intercept the source of these cyber threats – phishing.
Read on for proven ways to get ahead of these attacks and protect your employees.
