What if you had a service that guaranteed it could stop all email phishing attacks before they were even sent?
Phishing costs U.S. businesses more than $500 million dollars a year. It’s the most common type of cybercrime, and it affects thousands of companies every year.
No matter how strong your cyber security is, any user, employee, or staff member could receive an email or text that could cripple your network and cost your company millions.
You could set your spam filter so high that you don’t receive any emails and then you’re set for life, but in reality, who is going to do that? You risk losing valuable customer communication, not to mention everything else. The main benefit is you don’t see all the work you have to do, so you look at an empty inbox feeling pretty good!
What you need is cyber security specific to phishing. What you need is Area1.
Area1 is an exciting cloud-based service that stops phishing attacks before they start! We were skeptical at first – how is that possible?
It works by searching out phishing attacks targeting your company “in the wild”, long before they reach you and your network. Through revolutionary proprietary methods, it discovers and stops emails from reaching the end users. It protects against all types of attacks, from whaling to ransomware emails.
