Iowa is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the USA. Throughout the last weeks, there have been 18 percent less automated hacking attempts than during the past two weeks in the USA. By now, this year there have been 780 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have dropped by 67 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the sum total of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 350,000.

The data comes from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter 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 passwords or passphrases, hoping to finally get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
