There has been, by means of a comparison, a rise of the sum total of brute-force attacks in Netherlands and South Africa. With 580 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the last fortnight, Netherlands has witnessed an escalation of 22 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In South Africa, the sum total has risen by 12 percent to 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight contraction all around the world. In other words, Sweden is going against the flow. The brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have diminished by 3.4 percent in the world during the past two weeks. By now, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Throughout the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has shot up by 7.1 percent. Simply put, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,300,000.

The information comes from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to ultimately get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
