The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight decline all around the world. In other words, Switzerland is going against the flow. There have been 16 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the course of the past two weeks compared to the 14 days prior. So far, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The brute-force attacks have dropped by 20 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,300,000.

The statistics is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks.

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

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields businesses from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
