Up until today, this year there have been 1,100 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have decreased by 43 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 430,000.

The evidence comes from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for companies, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics 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 automated hacking attempt, 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 problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
