The data is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers thoroughly. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts.

During the brute-force attack, 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 correct one.

To avoid problems and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that protects businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
