In Turkey, the number has grown by 160 percent to 2,100 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Thailand is not alone. The attacks on syspeaces have shown a big increase all around the world. There have been 20 percent more automated hacking attempts in the world on syspeaces in the through the past two weeks compared to the two weeks prior. So far, this year there have been 1,900 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has shot up by 25 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,600,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The data originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace thoroughly. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts.

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

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