In a nutshell, business email compromise (BEC) is a broad category of cyberattack that uses email-based fraud to obtain access to sensitive and valuable business information. In a typical BEC attack, a cybercriminal poses as the victim’s superior (e.g., a manager or CEO) or a trusted party (e.g., business partner). The email directs the recipient to either share important information or it can tell the victim that a payment must be made to a new account.

- What is a Hosted Desktop?
A SimplyClouds Hosted Desktop is just like your traditional desktop, right down to your wallpaper and shortcuts, but it is accessed over the internet. Once you have a hosted desktop, it will be accessible on virtually any device—including tablets, smartphones, and other personal devices, in addition to your office desktop system—and so will its associated data. Your programs, applications, and data will be available to you and your team anywhere and anytime, increasing your productivity and ability to communicate.
Unlike other hosted desktops, a SimplyClouds Hosted Desktop gives you a single, highly secure access point for all your applications and files, wherever they reside. Our exclusive hybrid cloud technology provides seamless access to your mission-critical systems and data residing on the SimplyClouds cloud, your on-premise servers, or third party public clouds like those from Amazon, Microsoft, and Google.
