Area 1 Security has announced a program to allow partners to easily sell and deliver a cloud-native email security solution directly to North American clients. The two-tiered program supports MSPs, VARs, solution providers, cloud distributors, and technology alliance partners.
Email security today is fundamentally broken, the company says, and the current email security market is in transition. Secure email gateways (SEGs) were built for the perimeter and are being replaced with cloud email security (CES) solutions. Given the amount of legacy SEGs in service over the past 15 years, Area 1 estimates that the total addressable market for partners to help migrate those customers onto newer cloud-native email security solutions is upwards of $10B.
Partners can help customers improve security and lower TCO by helping them with this transition. Area 1 can preemptively stop business email compromise, malware, ransomware, and other sophisticated phishing attempts, which legacy email gateways and cloud email suites miss. Area 1’s industry-first, utility-based pricing model aligns better email security performance with budget — while still guaranteeing partners recurring, SaaS-based revenue.
The new Area 1 Security partner program is open for enrollment.
