In its recent “It Started Out with a Phish” study, Area 1 Security analyzed more than 31 million threats that could have resulted in over $354 million in direct losses, had they been successful. Area 1 offers the only preemptive, cloud-native solution proven to be effective against targeted “1:1” (versus “1 to many”) phish, such as supply chain-based Business Email Compromise and credential harvesters that lead to ransomware attacks. Other solutions only stop high-volume threats, require time-intensive “tuning,” and fail to act in real-time.

The senior midmarket IT leaders who attend MES+ vote on the XCellence Award winners to recognize the most distinguished midmarket products, services, and presentations. This award honors Area 1 Security not only for its dedication to excellence, but also for its continued commitment to understanding the unique IT and business needs of the midmarket.

“Area 1 Security’s unique ability to deliver what we call INBOX.CLEAN™ — that is, an inbox free from the most sophisticated threats that result in massive financial fraud — clearly resonates with today’s IT leaders,” said Steve Pataky, chief revenue officer of Area 1 Security. “Midsize enterprise teams need solutions that free up security resources, preempt vs. remediate risks, automate processes, and provide measurable business outcomes. INBOX.CLEAN helps them achieve those goals.”

“The MES+ XCellence Awards pay tribute to the IT suppliers that provide groundbreaking and innovative ways to thrive in our evolving midmarket landscape,” said Adam Dennison, VP of Midsize Enterprise Services at The Channel Company. “The winners have demonstrated their commitment to helping midsize enterprise IT leaders find new opportunities for future growth and build on the business lessons learned over the past year and a half. We congratulate Area 1 Security, and we look forward to being a part of their continued success.”

The Channel Company’s MES+ Fall 2021 conference was held September 19–21 in Dallas, TX. It brought together senior midmarket IT decision-makers, top technology suppliers, IDC analysts, and industry thought leaders to share the latest market intelligence, accelerate their business goals, and form invaluable strategic relationships.
