In Florida, the amount has climbed up by 140 percent to 2,700 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

All around the USA, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a noticeable growth, so Alabama is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have increased by 48 percent in the USA in the previous 14 days. Up until today, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has dropped by 50 percent. In other words, Syspeace blocked 680,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The information source is Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down 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 automated hacking attempts.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that protects businesses from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
