The data is collected by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts 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 automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually 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 safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
