The data originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves firms 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 statistics on brute-force attacks.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the right one.

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
