The information is collected by 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 discover and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the correct one.

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