The data originates from 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 records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global pioneer 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 finally 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 shields companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
