The statistics originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts.

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

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
