Throughout the past two weeks, the amount of brute-force attacks in Illinois grew slightly compared to the previous 14 days. The automated hacking attempts have shot up by 11 percent through the two weeks prior, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In the whole USA, there was a slight increase of 11 percent.

The sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased slightly during the 14 days prior in Illinois as 85 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts grew slightly by 11 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Illinois was 620.

There has been, for comparison, an escalation of the number of brute-force attacks in North Carolina and Arizona. With 660 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14 days, North Carolina has seen a growth of 12 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Arizona, the sum total has shot up by 9 percent to 500 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight increase, so Illinois is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have climbed up by 11 percent in the USA throughout the previous 14 days. So far, this year there have been 2,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have dropped by 7.5 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,100,000.

The statistics originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks 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 brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to in the end get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the correct one.

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
