The evidence originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
