Up until today, this year there have been 1,200 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have grown by 53 percent on a year-to-year comparison. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 490,000 automated hacking attempts in the USA.

The evidence is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves enterprises 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 conscientiously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

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