During the last weeks, there have been 14 percent less automated hacking attempts than throughout the previous 14 days in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. The brute-force attacks have dropped by 7.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison.

The data is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts 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 automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
