All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have been unchanged, but, as said, District of Columbia has rising problems. So far, this year there have been 900 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. In the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has risen by 2.9 percent. That is to say, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 370,000.

The information originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves firms time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers meticulously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

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

To keep trouble out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
