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

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
