Throughout the last weeks there have been 47 percent more automated hacking attempts than in the course of the past two weeks in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 9.3 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 1,100,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The statistics is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to finally get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To avoid problems and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
