The statistics is collected by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter on the topic.

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

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
