An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.

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