The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a big drop all around the USA. That is to say, Maryland is going against the flow. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased by 25 percent in the USA during the past two weeks. Up until now, this year there have been 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have decreased by 47 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 500,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

The information is released from 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 carefully. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

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

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that protects businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
