The number of brute-force attacks on Windows servers in Canada increased throughout the previous 14-day period. Data from Syspeace shows automated hacking attempts per server have gone up by 10 percent. In the whole world, there was a slight escalation of 20 percent.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased slightly in the course of the two weeks prior in Canada as 280 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks increased slightly by 10 percent. The sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Canada was 7,900.

There has been, with similar changes, a growth of the number of automated hacking attempts in Denmark and Brazil. With 760 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the previous 14 days, Denmark has recorded a rise of 19 percent compared to the past two weeks. In Brazil, the amount has climbed up by 12 percent to 98 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight growth, so Canada is not alone with the problem. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have gone up by 20 percent in the world during the previous 14 days. Up until now, this year there have been 880 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has dropped by 43 percent. That is to say, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 650,000.

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

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 checked to find the correct one.

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
