Arizona is not alone. The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big increase all around the USA. There have been 52 percent more brute-force attacks in the USA on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers in the during the last fortnight compared to the last fortnight. Up until now, this year there have been 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has risen by 1.3 percent. That means the sum total of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,100,000.

The data is collected by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global pioneer 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 different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
