The data comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves companies 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 conscientiously. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

An automated hacking attempt 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 avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
