In Nevada, the amount has increased by 69 percent to 150 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a big drop, but Tennessee sees the opposite. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have diminished by 23 percent in the USA in the course of the previous 14-day period. By now, this year there have been 1,700 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have diminished by 19 percent on a year-to-year comparison.

The statistics is collected by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves enterprises 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 conscientiously. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To keep trouble out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
