The statistics originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. 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 innovator on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to finally get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the right one.

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
