Cloudflare Area 1 Email Security

Stop phishing attacks and secure your cloud email

Don’t trust your inbox: protect your organization from attacks against your #1 business application: email. Cloudflare Area 1 comprehensively defends against sophisticated threats by stopping phish at the earliest stages of the attack cycle.

Get Zero Trust protection against a broad spectrum of threats: malware-less Business Email Compromise, multichannel phishing, credential harvesting, and other targeted phishing. All in a cloud-native service that can be deployed in minutes to secure your Microsoft 365 and Gmail users.

The Cloudflare Area 1 Difference

Stop attacks days before launch

Area 1 preemptively hunts for phishing infrastructure, sources, and delivery mechanisms to block campaigns at the onset - no more waiting for signature updates.

Remove implicit trust from your inbox

Comprehensively block campaigns across different attack vectors (email, web browser, SMS, and others), even when messages are from “trusted” senders or domains.

Simplify threat defense

Get end-to-end phishing triage and response, plus seamless integration with SIEMs and other security tools. PhishGuard customers gain additional protection from insider threats and active fraud.

Save IT time and resources

Replace ineffective SEGs and stop more phish with cloud-native, API-first email security, with nothing to install or endlessly “tune.”
