Up until today, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has grown by 50 percent. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,200,000.

The information is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time.

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

To avoid trouble and to block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with great customer support.
