Switzerland Sees a Noticeable Growth in Automated Hacking Attempts

In the 14 days prior, Switzerland has seen how the amount of automated hacking attempts has went up slightly. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 6 percent throughout the previous 14-day period, according to data from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. However, there was a big decrease of 30 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace registered 480 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Switzerland in the past two weeks. That means the brute-force attacks increased slightly by 6 percent. Syspeace blocked 1,100 automated hacking attempts in Switzerland. In a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 2nd highest number of automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

For the purpose of comparison, brute-force attacks in Ireland and Australia have increased. With 270 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Ireland has recorded a surge of 9.1 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Australia, the amount has gone up by 6.9 percent to 1,700 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the world, brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a big decline, but Switzerland sees the opposite. There have been 30 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Windows servers secured by Syspeace during the 14 days prior compared to the last fortnight. So far, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Throughout the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has gone up by 10 percent. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,500,000 automated hacking attempts in the world.

The evidence is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global pioneer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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 inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To keep trouble out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
