The information is collected by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. 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 monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global innovator 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 checked to find the right one.

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