Area 1 Security

Area 1 Horizon is a cloud-based service that stops phishing attacks across all traffic vectors— email, web, or network.

With globally distributed sensors, massive scale web-crawling, and comprehensive pre-attack analytics, Area 1 Horizon identifies phishing campaigns, attacker infrastructure, and attack delivery mechanisms during the earliest stages of a phishing attack cycle.

Using cloud-based email and web security platforms, automated infrastructure connectors, and comprehensive APIs, Area 1 Horizon takes preemptive action against phishing attacks across all traffic. These actions are transparent, flexible and can occur either at the customer’s network edge or in the cloud.

Utilizing an ever-growing database of exploits, you can safely simulate real-world attacks on your network to train your security team to spot and stop the real thing.
