The sum total of automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Florida built up during the previous 14 days. According to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a surge of 58 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. In the whole USA, there was a big increase of 52 percent.

Syspeace recorded 4,000 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Florida during the two weeks prior. That means the brute-force attacks increased noticeably by 58 percent. Syspeace blocked 65,000 brute-force attacks in Florida. It is the 5th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server for a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history of hackers trying to gain access to servers.

There has been, by means of a comparison, a climb of the number of brute-force attacks in Connecticut and California. With 9,200 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the past two weeks, Connecticut has witnessed a climb of 61 percent in comparison with the last fortnight.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a noticeable growth all around the USA. Simply put, Florida is not alone with the problem. There have been 52 percent more brute-force attacks in the USA on Windows servers secured by Syspeace in the during the last fortnight compared to the past two weeks. So far, this year there have been 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Throughout the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has gone up by 1.3 percent.

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

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 checked to find the right one.

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