With 690 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14 days, Honduras has seen a surge of 2,000 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Switzerland, the number has grown by 130 percent to 410 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decrease all around the world. Simply put, Italy is going against the flow. In the last weeks, there have been 11 percent less brute-force attacks than in the previous 14-day period in the world.
