There were no reports of injuries in the pre-dawn attack on the US company's headquarters in the Greek capital, located in the Maroussi suburb north of the city centre.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility. Authorities said no warning call had been made before the attack.
Greece has experienced attacks by several small armed anarchist or domestic terrorist groups for decades, which usually target official buildings, banks or symbols of state power with small bombs or incendiary devices. The attacks usually occur late at night and rarely cause injuries.
Police said initial information indicated three people had been inside the van. They forced the two security guards at the building to leave before they reversed the van into the front entrance, smashing the door.
The two security guards were giving testimony to police.
The assailants then triggered an incendiary device inside the van that police said appeared to have consisted of camping gas canisters and several containers of gasoline.
