In the course of the last weeks, there have been 32 percent less brute-force attacks than throughout the previous 14 days in the USA. So far, this year there have been 680 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has declined by 47 percent. In other words, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 280,000.

The statistics originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trendsetter 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 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 avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
