Third Largest Growth of Brute-Force Attacks in the USA in Connecticut

Through the 14 days prior, Connecticut has recorded how the sum total of brute-force attacks has built up. Evidence from Syspeace shows brute-force attacks per server have gone up by 51 percent. In the USA, that’s the third greatest rise of brute-force attacks on Windows servers. At the same time, there was a slight decline of 12 percent in the whole USA.

Syspeace documented 2,800 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Connecticut throughout the last fortnight. Simply put, the brute-force attacks increased noticeably by 51 percent. Syspeace blocked 22,000 brute-force attacks in Connecticut.

District of Columbia and Alabama have – for the purpose of comparison – been under increased attacks. With 2,600 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, District of Columbia has witnessed a surge of 72 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Alabama, the number has climbed up by 44 percent to 14,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Connecticut is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on syspeaces have decreased all around the USA. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased by 12 percent in the USA during the previous 14-day period. Up until now, this year there have been 2,000 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 49 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,000,000.

The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global pioneer 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 different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to finally get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

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