South Carolina is not alone. The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown an escalation all around the USA. Throughout the last weeks there have been 24 percent more automated hacking attempts than in the previous 14-day period in the USA. By now, this year there have been 2,800 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 34 percent on a year-to-year comparison.

The information is released 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 discover and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

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

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
