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

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
