About Area 1 Security
Area 1’s mission is to stop phish - the root cause of 95% of cybersecurity incidents. Phishing enables rogue wire transfers, stolen customer data, and initial access into computer networks.
Area 1 Horizon, a native cloud-based service, the only one which is preemptive, accurate & accountable. It deploys in minutes and stops phishing attacks across all traffic vectors—email, web, or network.
Phishing attacks remain the primary cybersecurity threat to organizations of all sizes. Existing defenses struggle with these highly focused and sophisticated campaigns. Users are constantly lured into falling for phishing baits, leading to massive financial damage and data loss. The speed, variety, and cunning of these attacks underscore the urgent need for a new, advanced platform to address them which is what Area 1 is all about.
