Brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Ohio have increased in the previous 14-day period. The brute-force attacks have risen by 19 percent in the course of the 14 days prior, according to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In contrast, there was a slight fall of 16 percent in the whole USA.

The sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased in the past two weeks in Ohio as 67 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. Simply put, the brute-force attacks increased slightly by 19 percent. The sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Ohio was 360.

Minnesota and Arizona have – with similar changes – been under increased attacks. With 41 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the last fortnight, Minnesota has seen a growth of 24 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Arizona, the amount has climbed up by 12 percent to 230 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight fall all around the USA. That is to say, Ohio is going against the flow. Throughout the last weeks, there have been 16 percent less automated hacking attempts than throughout the previous 14-day period in the USA. Up until now, this year there have been 910 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have increased by 44 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, the amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 370,000.

The statistics comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to ultimately get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects enterprises from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
