The statistics comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global syspeaces carefully. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to ultimately get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
