In New Jersey, the number of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers increased in the course of the last fortnight compared to the past two weeks. According to statistics from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a climb of 6.4 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In contrast, there was a big drop of 23 percent in the whole USA.

In New Jersey, the number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased slightly during the previous 14 days as 3,500 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. In other words, the brute-force attacks grew slightly by 6.4 percent. Syspeace blocked 7,300 brute-force attacks in New Jersey. In the state’s measured history, this is the 5th highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server for a single 14-day period.

Iowa and Mississippi have – for comparison – been under increased attacks. With 3,100 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14 days, Iowa has seen an escalation of 21 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Mississippi, the number has risen by 8 percent to 150 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big decline, but New Jersey sees the opposite. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have dropped by 23 percent in the USA throughout the two weeks prior. Up until today, this year there have been 1,700 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have risen by 7.8 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 880,000.

The evidence comes from 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 data 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 brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to in the end get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
