The report doesn\’t lie — the amount of automated hacking attempts in California has built up in the course of the previous 14-day period.

Up until now, this year there have been 980 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. The brute-force attacks have declined by 55 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, Syspeace blocked 370,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

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

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 correct one.

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
