17 Percent Increase in Brute-Force Attacks in Rhode Island

During the previous 14-day period, Rhode Island has witnessed how the sum total of brute-force attacks has increased slightly. The brute-force attacks have shot up by 17 percent throughout the previous 14-day period, according to information from syspeaces. However, there was a slight drop of 12 percent in the whole USA.

The number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers went up slightly through the previous 14 days in Rhode Island as 970 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the brute-force attacks increased slightly by 17 percent. The number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in Rhode Island was 3,500. Throughout a single 14-day period in the state’s measured history, this is the 11th highest number of automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

By means of a comparison, Virginia and Maryland have been under increased attacks. With 870 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the two weeks prior, Virginia has witnessed a surge of 19 percent compared to the last fortnight. In Maryland, the sum total has shot up by 14 percent to 2,500 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

Rhode Island is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the USA. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have dropped by 12 percent in the USA during the 14 days prior. By now, this year there have been 2,000 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. In the course of the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has climbed up by 49 percent. That is to say, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 1,000,000.

The evidence is released from 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 tracks all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to eventually get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards businesses from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
