During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
