Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Arkansas have increased slightly during the previous 14-day period. The brute-force attacks have grown by 6.7 percent throughout the previous 14-day period, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. There was a slight growth of 15 percent in the whole USA.

In Arkansas, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased slightly in the two weeks prior as 3,100 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks went up slightly by 6.7 percent. That means 3,100 total the amount of brute-force attacks in the Arkansas in the past two weeks were blocked by Syspeace.

In comparison, there has been a climb of the amount of brute-force attacks in Virginia and Pennsylvania. With 350 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14-day period, Virginia has recorded a surge of 20 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Pennsylvania, the number has increased by 6.4 percent to 690 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Arkansas is not alone. The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight increase all around the USA. Throughout the last weeks there have been 15 percent more automated hacking attempts than through the previous 14 days in the USA. Up until today, this year there have been 1,600 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. In the course of the same period last year, the sum total of brute-force attacks has risen by 4.6 percent. That means the amount of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 770,000.

The evidence originates from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers globally. Syspeace is an intrusion-prevention software that provides affordable and easy-to-use tools for firms to fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is the world leader on the topic.

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

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