In Canada, the amount has risen by 10 percent to 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big decrease, but Sweden sees the opposite. There have been 30 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the course of the previous 14-day period compared to the previous 14 days. So far, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. During the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has increased by 10 percent. That is to say, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,500,000.
