Targeted COVID-19 Protection for Customers

Area 1 has published a variety of new models leveraging COVID-19 as the primary theme, such as impersonation of local, state and healthcare authorities, and impersonation of remote working tools (e.g.: Zoom, WebEx etc.). Additionally, Area 1 sensors have been updated to proactively look for campaign infrastructure related to COVID-19 phish. In order to better protect our customers, we are providing  the following offers:

  • Complimentary Partner Protection: Attackers are increasingly leveraging third- party partners to breach organizations. Recognizing that the current environment makes small partner organizations more vulnerable, Area 1 has doubled the ability for Enterprise customers to offer the Area 1 service to their small business partners on a complimentary basis; from 10 partners to 20 partners. This will be available until June 30, 2021. For more details, please reach out to your designated Technical Account Manager.

  • Complimentary Web Phish Protection:
    With the increased focus on remote working, we expect organizations to be increasingly targeted through their employees that are logging into system remotely. In order to provide the highest levels of protection, Area 1 will waive any Pay-per-Phish fees for phish that are detected through remote Web browsing. This benefit will be automatically available for all customers through June 30, 2021. For more details, please reach out to your designated Technical Account Manager.

[Area 1’s] cost model turns implementation into low risk. We installed it behind our existing spam/phish filter with the understanding we would only pay for what our other systems miss. Since there is no long term lock in, it allowed us to test out this new service with very little risk.
