In the country’s measured history, this is the 3rd highest number of attempted automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period.

For a comparison, Finland and El Salvador have been under increased attacks. With 290 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Finland has recorded a climb of 170 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In El Salvador, the sum total has grown by 73 percent to 45 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

There have been 14 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers through the previous 14-day period compared to the past two weeks. Up until now, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has declined by 7.1 percent.

The statistics is collected 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 brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

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