In Colombia, the sum total has climbed up by 28 percent to 1,300 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.
All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decline, but Czech Republic sees the opposite. During the last weeks, there have been 11 percent less brute-force attacks than during the two weeks prior in the world. Up until today, this year there have been 1,700 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world.

The information originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for enterprises, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global innovator on the topic.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of finally guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.
To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
