Big Growth in Brute-Force Attacks in Colorado

Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Colorado have increased noticeably through the previous 14-day period. The automated hacking attempts have increased by 34 percent in the previous 14 days, according to statistics from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. In contrast, there was no change in the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the whole USA.

Syspeace recorded 34 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers in Colorado in the course of the previous 14 days. That means the brute-force attacks built up by 34 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Colorado was 38.

There has been, by way of comparison, an escalation of the number of brute-force attacks in Georgia and Iowa. With 85 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the past two weeks, Georgia has recorded an increase of 36 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Iowa, the number has risen by 23 percent to 700 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

By now, this year there have been 900 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has risen by 2.9 percent. That is to say, the number of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 370,000.

The evidence is released from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed information 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.

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

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