All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decline, but France sees the opposite. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased by 19 percent in the world in the course of the previous 14 days. By now, this year there have been 1,400 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has diminished by 3.2 percent.

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

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

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
