4 Percent Increase in Automated Hacking Attempts in Florida

Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Florida have went up slightly through the previous 14-day period. The automated hacking attempts have increased by 4 percent through the 14 days prior, according to statistics from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. Overall, in the USA, there was a noticeable growth of 32 percent.

In Florida, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up slightly in the previous 14-day period as 2,100 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased by 4 percent. That means 31,000 total the amount of automated hacking attempts in the Florida throughout the previous 14-day period were blocked by Syspeace.

For the purpose of comparison, Rhode Island and Washington have been under increased attacks. With 140 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the last fortnight, Rhode Island has recorded a rise of 5.7 percent in comparison with the past two weeks. In Washington, the sum total has climbed up by 2 percent to 1,900 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

Florida is not alone. The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big increase all around the USA. In the course of the last weeks there have been 32 percent more automated hacking attempts than through the previous 14-day period in the USA. By now, this year there have been 1,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of automated hacking attempts has declined by 53 percent. That means the sum total of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 490,000.

The evidence source is Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. 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 Windows servers secured by Syspeace thoroughly. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of in the end guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To avoid trouble and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
