So far, this year there have been 1,300 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. During the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has gone up by 72 percent. In other words, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 630,000.

The data comes from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of finally guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.
