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
