Brute-Force Attacks Go up Significantly in Arizona

The number of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Arizona increased greatly in the last fortnight. The brute-force attacks have gone up by 29 percent throughout the two weeks prior, according to evidence from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. In contrast, there was no change in the number of automated hacking attempts in the whole USA.

In Arizona, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up throughout the two weeks prior as 210 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. In other words, the automated hacking attempts went up by 29 percent. That means 480 total the number of brute-force attacks in the Arizona through the 14 days prior were blocked by Syspeace.

For the sake of comparison, there has been a growth of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. With 320 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Massachusetts has seen a surge of 30 percent in comparison with the previous 14 days. In Pennsylvania, the amount has risen by 26 percent to 940 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Up until today, this year there have been 1,000 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have increased by 45 percent on a year-to-year comparison. In other words, Syspeace blocked 420,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.

The data comes from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed statistics on automated hacking attempts 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.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of in the end guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To avoid trouble and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
