In the last weeks, there have been 31 percent less brute-force attacks than in the past two weeks in the USA. Up until today, this year there have been 1,300 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. Compared to the same period last year, the sum total of automated hacking attempts has climbed up by 72 percent. Simply put, Syspeace blocked 630,000 brute-force attacks in the USA.

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

During the automated hacking attempt, 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 right one.
