Throughout the last weeks, there have been 11 percent less automated hacking attempts than during the past two weeks in the USA. By now, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA.

The data is released from Windows servers secured by Syspeace 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 companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is the world leader on the topic.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
