In Ireland, the amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace increased noticeably in the previous 14-day period as 560 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 44 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Ireland was 2,500.

There has been, for comparison purposes, a surge of the amount of automated hacking attempts in Norway and Lithuania. With 230 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Norway has recorded an increase of 50 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Lithuania, the sum total has risen by 35 percent to 550 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decrease all around the world. That is to say, Ireland is going against the flow. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have dropped by 14 percent in the world through the past two weeks. Up until now, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. The automated hacking attempts have decreased by 7.1 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 940,000 brute-force attacks in the world.

The evidence is collected by Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global pioneer 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 ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that shields firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
