The statistics is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts 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.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

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