Area 1 Security, a stealth cybersecurity company dedicated to eliminating targeted phishing and malicious social engineering attacks, today announced it has raised $15 million in a Series B funding round in recognition of significant product and customer momentum. The latest round brings Area 1 Security's total funding amount to $25.5 million and is led by Joe Horowitz at Icon Ventures and Ted Schlein at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB). "The security industry is passive and forensics oriented, leaving companies without opportunities to protect themselves," said Joe Horowitz, Managing General Partner, Icon Ventures. "Overwhelmingly, the root cause of attacks begins with socially engineered phishing. Area 1 Security uniquely identifies these threats prior to breach, but more importantly, gives enterprises a new way to change outcomes."
