Area 1 Security and SolCyber Partner to Deliver the Only Managed Preemptive Cloud Email Security to the Midmarket

Area 1 Security | October 22, 2021

Area 1 Security has been selected as the primary cloud email security provider for all customers of SolCyber, the first modern MSSP for the midmarket. Area 1's industry-first preemptive cloud email security stops phishing campaigns 24 days (on average) before they launch — keeping inboxes clean of threats that cause 95% of cybersecurity incidents.

The SolCyber and Area 1 partnership brings best-in-class email protection to midsize organizations, which are increasingly targeted by phishing attacks. According to a recent survey by RSM US LLP in partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, 45% of mid-market executives said that social engineering attacks were successful last year — despite 90% of their organizations providing security awareness training. Additionally, 33% of mid-market executives disclosed that they experienced a ransomware attack or demand in 2020.

The implications for mid-market organizations — which typically have fewer in-house resources and specialty expertise compared to larger organizations —are significant and costly. In fact, of the mid-market businesses that have experienced a cyberattack, 63% are unable to resume normal business operations for over a month.

In one 12-month period, Area 1 Security prevented more than half a billion dollars in direct losses for its customers, including some of the world's largest healthcare, financial services, retail and consumer goods brands. Its cloud-scale solution is one of the core components in SolCyber's Foundational offering, a simple-to-implement curated technology stack, which also includes endpoint with EDR capabilities, lateral movement detection, and active directory and admin exploitation prevention.

We're very excited about our partnership with Area 1 Security. They have an amazing web crawling infrastructure that gives early warning protection that really matters to our customers. It's not often you can find a preemptive security technology that really works, and provides immediate value,Our customers want to stop ransomware and other cyber threats to their businesses. Period. But they typically don't have the time or resources to build a mature security posture on their own. Area 1 fits seamlessly into our Foundational Coverage, it deploys in minutes and is highly scalable, accelerating our customers' time to realize true value.

SolCyber CEO Scott McCrady

It is standard knowledge for infosec professionals worldwide that cybercriminals are exploiting email-based attacks for their own gain. As pioneers in the development and use of simulated attacks, we recognize that anti-phishing training is as important now as it ever was. Spear phishing, business email compromise (BEC), and email-based ransomware are keeping response and remediation teams on their toes. But these are far from the only ways attackers can gain a foothold within an organization or compromise sensitive data and systems.
