Up until now, this year there have been 1,700 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA.

The information is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace conscientiously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

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