The number of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace grew in the course of the two weeks prior in Connecticut as 1,900 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks went up slightly by 3.1 percent. That means 13,000 total the amount of automated hacking attempts in the Connecticut through the previous 14 days were blocked by Syspeace.

Up until today, this year there have been 2,300 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have shot up by 51 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the amount of automated hacking attempts in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,200,000.

The evidence is released from Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves companies time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to find and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace conscientiously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on automated hacking attempts.

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

To keep trouble out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that protects enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
