Up until today, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Throughout the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has gone up by 46 percent. In other words, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,000,000.
