Netherlands Witnesses 22 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks

The amount of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Netherlands increased noticeably throughout the last fortnight. According to statistics from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a rise of 22 percent in brute-force attacks per server. However, there was a slight contraction of 3.4 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace recorded 580 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Netherlands during the previous 14 days. That means the brute-force attacks built up by 22 percent. Syspeace blocked 4,100 brute-force attacks in Netherlands.

For the purpose of comparison, Switzerland and Sweden have been under increased attacks. With 340 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the past two weeks, Switzerland has recorded a climb of 24 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Sweden, the sum total has shot up by 15 percent to 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight decline all around the world. That is to say, Netherlands is going against the flow. There have been 3.4 percent less brute-force attacks in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers in the previous 14-day period compared to the two weeks prior. Up until now, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has climbed up by 7.1 percent. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,300,000.

The evidence comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace meticulously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to in the end get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
