In Egypt, the sum total has gone up by 76 percent to 3,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a big decrease all around the world. Simply put, Belgium is going against the flow. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have dropped by 30 percent in the world throughout the previous 14 days. Up until today, this year there have been 1,800 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 10 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,500,000.

The statistics originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to discover and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace meticulously. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

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 right one.

To avoid problems and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
