Alaska is not alone. The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight increase all around the USA. There have been 12 percent more brute-force attacks in the USA on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers in the in the previous 14 days compared to the past two weeks. By now, this year there have been 1,000 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 44 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 370,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.

The evidence is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. 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 records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts.

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

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
