    Hacking has have moved far beyond tic-tac-toe, website defacement, stealing passwords and credit card numbers.

    Phishing is the attack that starts an attack and is responsible for > 95% of all cyber attacks around the world because it is effective.

    Most cybersecurity solutions act like a police force: they’re called in when a crime has been committed to try to solve it. But Area 1 acts as a bodyguard: we prevent damage from occurring. We can do this because a phishing attack starts months before it’s discovered. Phishing isn’t a surprise to us. We see it from the beginning. That’s the best time to stop it.

    Because we’re focused on preemption and not detection, our field of view is much broader. We see the attack as its being planned, in its early formative stages. And with that information, we can provide a broader, more effective response to all the different ways we know our customers will be attacked.

    We believe in accountability. That’s why we invented Pay-Per-Phish. Our customers only pay for the attacks we catch. And if we don’t catch them, they don’t pay us. We’re willing to be held accountable with metrics that document our real world protection. This makes us the first and only company in the entire cybersecurity industry to stand behind the performance of its solution.

    Our team works to create the most advanced next-generation technologies that change how millions of users are protected from malicious attacks across the world wide web. Our ambitions reach far beyond what is currently available in the security market today.
