The statistics originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace conscientiously. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to finally get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the right one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
