New Jersey Witnesses a Noticeable Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

During the two weeks prior, the amount of brute-force attacks in New Jersey grew compared to the previous 14 days. According to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a surge of 17 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. Overall, in the USA, there was a great increase of 67 percent.

Syspeace recorded 600 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in New Jersey during the past two weeks. That is to say, the brute-force attacks went up slightly by 17 percent. That means 1,400 total the number of automated hacking attempts in the New Jersey in the course of the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace.

Arizona and Texas have – for comparison purposes – been under increased attacks. With 660 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the 14 days prior, Arizona has recorded an increase of 33 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Texas, the number has increased by 16 percent to 900 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a great increase, so New Jersey is not alone with the problem. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have increased by 67 percent in the USA throughout the last fortnight. Up until today, this year there have been 3,700 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. During the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has risen by 2.7 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,900,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The statistics is collected by Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

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 systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
