During the previous 14 days, Denmark has seen how the sum total of automated hacking attempts has increased greatly. According to information from Windows servers secured by Syspeace, there was a climb of 28 percent in automated hacking attempts per server. However, there was a slight fall of 19 percent in the whole world.

Syspeace recorded 3,900 brute-force attacks per Windows servers in Denmark through the two weeks prior. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts went up by 28 percent. Syspeace blocked 94,000 brute-force attacks in Denmark. In a single 14-day period in the country’s measured history, this is the 5th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

In comparison, automated hacking attempts in Romania and Canada have gone up. With 1,600 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the 14 days prior, Romania has witnessed a climb of 92 percent compared to the two weeks prior. In Canada, the amount has gone up by 19 percent to 1,900 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

Denmark is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. During the last weeks, there have been 19 percent less brute-force attacks than during the two weeks prior in the world. So far, this year there have been 1,400 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the world. The automated hacking attempts have grown by 3.2 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, Syspeace blocked 1,000,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The data originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data 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.

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

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
