Simply put, the brute-force attacks increased significantly by 400 percent. Syspeace blocked 2,700 automated hacking attempts in Zimbabwe. In the country’s measured history, this is the highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period.

For a comparison, there has been a rise of the amount of automated hacking attempts in Hungary and Italy. With 2,700 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the 14 days prior, Hungary has witnessed a climb of 380 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Italy, the number has gone up by 220 percent to 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decline all around the world. Simply put, Zimbabwe is going against the flow. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have declined by 18 percent in the world through the 14 days prior. Up until today, this year there have been 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The automated hacking attempts have shot up by 46 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 1,000,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

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

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of ultimately guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that protects businesses from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
