San Francisco –
Cloudflare, Inc. announced. (NYSE: NET), the provider of security, performance, and reliability that helps build a better Internet, today that the company plans to provide enterprise-grade email security tools to Cloudflare customers to be available once Cloudflare’s acquisition of Zone 1 security is complete. Email remains one of the biggest security threats facing businesses of all sizes. However, current email security solutions are often too expensive, too complex, and difficult for organizations to implement. With the acquisition of Area 1 Security, Cloudflare will provide organizations with an easy way to take advantage of trusted phishing and malware detection as part of Zero Trust’s integrated approach to securing all applications in the enterprise.
“Email is the number one cyber-attack vector on the web, and we believe you don’t have to be a Fortune 100 company to protect against email threats,” said Matthew Prince, Co-Founder and CEO of Cloudflare. “We recently made a significant investment in email security with the acquisition of Area 1 Security. In the spirit of democratizing email security, we want to make many key features available to businesses of all sizes. This is the future of Zero Trust security – an integrated approach that enables You protect all your business applications with just one click.”
Legacy email security products are often expensive, complex, and require a physical or virtual infrastructure that many organizations cannot achieve without a large IT team. The protections offered by major email providers are often good enough to stop annoying spam, but they are not able to fend off complex phishing attacks. With email continuing to be a popular target for increasingly complex cyber attacks, organizations of all sizes must incorporate email security into their overall security approach. Area 1 Security’s advanced email protection provides Cloudflare customers with an easy-to-use and highly effective email security solution that can be implemented in just one click. Integrating the solution with Cloudflare’s Zero Trust suite of solutions, we design Cloudflare’s email security tools to take advantage of email data to initiate additional security measures, such as: automatically redirecting suspicious links through remote browser isolation or providing phishing insights within the Cloudflare Security Center which was recently launched.
With these email security products, Cloudflare customers will be able to:
- On board with just one click: Customers already using Cloudflare DNS can route their email directly through Area 1 Security technology with a single click. No complicated setup steps required.
- Stop costly phishing attacks before they reach your inbox: Successful phishing attacks can lead to data breaches and business disruption from ransomware, as well as financial losses from compromised commercial email. Companies are now able to block these malicious emails from the source.
- Replace or augment existing email security solutions: Zone 1 security can be deployed before and after existing email security solutions, allowing them to be phased out over time or left in place as an additional layer of security.
- Get the same email security solution deployed by Fortune 100 companies: Benefit from the same technology regardless of the size of your company. Area 1 Security’s cloud-based solution integrates with cloud-based service providers such as Google G Suite and Microsoft Office 365, as well as on-premises installations.
The email security capabilities of Area 1 Security will be available to all Enterprise plan customers once Cloudflare’s acquisition of Area 1 Security is complete, and will be available to all other paid plan customers in the coming months to be available. Enterprise plan customers can also get additional controls, customization, and advanced insights through analytics.
