Throughout the previous 14-day period, Maine has recorded how the number of brute-force attacks has grew. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was a climb of 14 percent in brute-force attacks per server. Overall, in the USA, there was an escalation of 27 percent.

Syspeace documented 220 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Maine in the course of the last fortnight. That means the brute-force attacks increased slightly by 14 percent. Syspeace blocked 220 automated hacking attempts in Maine.

For the sake of comparison, there has been a surge of the amount of brute-force attacks in Nebraska and Arkansas. With 860 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the past two weeks, Nebraska has seen a growth of 26 percent in comparison with the last fortnight. In Arkansas, the amount has risen by 9 percent to 6,900 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a noticeable growth, so Maine is not alone with the problem. In the last weeks there have been 27 percent more automated hacking attempts than in the previous 14-day period in the USA. By now, this year there have been 2,800 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has gone up by 4.2 percent. In other words, the amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 1,400,000.

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

To keep trouble out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
