The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight decrease all around the world. In other words, Australia is going against the flow. There have been 14 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers throughout the previous 14-day period compared to the last fortnight. Up until today, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The automated hacking attempts have risen by 7.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,200,000.

The statistics is collected by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer on the topic.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of ultimately guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
