The data is collected by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

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