In Nebraska, the number has grown by 21 percent to 100 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight increase all around the USA. That is to say, Virginia is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have risen by 18 percent in the USA in the two weeks prior. By now, this year there have been 810 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have dropped by 48 percent on a year-to-year comparison.

The statistics is collected by 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 evidence on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the right one.

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