Business Risks

Digital business initiatives are key to competitiveness and growth, yet they come with security risks. Managing those risks requires a balance of enabling the business while protecting it from cyber threats that sabotage success. Phishing attacks continue to be the most effective weapon in an attacker’s arsenal, accounting for 95 percent of breaches, and causing both data and financial loss. These phishing attacks pose the greatest security risk to your business.

Data breaches, caused by hackers penetrating your infrastructure and collecting information, cause significant business harm. Theft of customer or personnel data such as credit card information, Personally Identifiable Information (PII), or Personal Health Information (PHI), can leave you vulnerable to expensive legal and regulatory compliance issues. Theft of proprietary information can compromise a company’s competitiveness and reputation. Incident response analysis of data breaches usually concludes that they start with a phishing attack.

Risk is not limited to costs and damages of data breaches alone. Businesses suffer significant losses from cyberattacks that breach corporate and customer bank accounts. In some cases, hackers steal credit card numbers to sell or use to access funds. In other cases, personnel are lured to transfer money to imposters posing as suppliers or business associates. Overwhelmingly, these costly breaches originate with phishing.

Put an End to These Cyberthreats

Business Email Compromise (BEC), whaling, ransomware, and watering holes are all forms of phishing. They lure users into opening emails, clicking on links, downloading files, transferring money or data, and entering information such as passwords into malicious websites.

Ransomware Protection

Current security solutions miss phish delivering ransomware. But we protect your data by preemptively detecting phish and blocking attacks.

BEC Protection

Early visibility into phishing campaigns lets us recognize imposter emails and prevent their delivery to user inboxes.

Malware Protection

We preemptively locate phishing campaigns—disabling phish and their malware payloads, stopping attacks from reaching your end users.

Spear Phishing Protection

These attacks use social engineering to target trusting users. We find their phishing sites and block attacks before they reach user inboxes.

Credential Harvesting

Early discovery of credential harvesting phishing sites and campaigns arms us to block user access to these malicious web pages.

Watering Hole Attacks

Area 1 Security proactively detects these phishing sites and threat payloads, using that knowledge to defend you from watering hole attacks and malware downloads.

Cloud Email Protection

Cloud office productivity suites such as Microsoft Office 365 and Google G Suite include security features such as anti-spam, anti-virus, advanced threat protection, data loss protection, email encryption, and archiving. However, targeted phishing attacks routinely evade their defenses.

Threat protections that accompany cloud office services rely on collecting and analyzing threat data from active phishing attacks—but only after phishing campaigns have actually breached victims and extracted their intelligence.

During the critical early hours of an outbreak, cloud office productivity suites lack visibility into newly launched phishing sites, allowing phish to escape detection. Suite protections also depend on intelligence derived from analyzing high volumes of malicious samples. Targeted attacks, which are low in volume, but lethal, can easily evade these defenses.

Area 1 Security closes this gap by adding a layer of defense that provides early visibility into phishing sites before they go live. This security layer integrates easily with cloud office suites, detecting the new, low-volume targeted phishing attacks that their defenses miss.

Fortifying Existing Defenses

Area 1 Security adds a layer of defense that provides critical early awareness and analysis of phishing campaigns before they launch. The solution integrates smoothly with your existing defenses, closing the security gap and protecting you from low-volume targeted phish that other solutions miss.

Secure Email Gateways

Phishing attacks often evade secure email gateways (SEGs), but we deploy quickly to add a layer of awareness, protecting against phishing campaigns before these low-volume attacks even go live.

Secure Web Gateways

Secure web gateways (SWGs) block access to malicious URLs and domains—but miss targeted phish because they can’t see new or low-volume threats. We integrate with SWGs to ensure blocking of all URLS and domains.

Firewalls

Attacks often originate from new, or low-volume phishing sites that firewalls miss. These targeted attacks use downloaded malware that ‘calls back’ hackers to transfer sensitive data. So we add a layer of protection to firewalls that detects and blocks phishing callbacks.

SIEMs

SIEMs correlate security information organization-wide to visualize and analyze malicious activity. Our solution integrates with workflow and security platforms through a RESTful API for total visibility of phishing attack activity.
