Netherlands Sees a Significant Growth in Brute-Force Attacks

In the course of the last fortnight, Netherlands has seen how the number of automated hacking attempts has went up. The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 33 percent in the course of the past two weeks, according to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. However, there was a slight decline of 11 percent in the whole world.

In Netherlands, the number of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased greatly in the course of the 14 days prior as 920 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were documented by Syspeace. Simply put, the automated hacking attempts increased greatly by 33 percent. That means 11,000 total the sum total of brute-force attacks in the Netherlands during the previous 14 days were blocked by Syspeace.

With similar changes, Mexico and Finland have been under increased attacks. With 1,300 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Mexico has seen a growth of 34 percent compared to the 14 days prior. In Finland, the number has climbed up by 30 percent to 87 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

The attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a slight drop all around the world. In other words, Netherlands is going against the flow. In the course of the last weeks, there have been 11 percent less automated hacking attempts than through the two weeks prior in the world. Up until now, this year there have been 1,700 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. In the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has climbed up by 5.5 percent. That is to say, the sum total of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,600,000.

The data originates from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace carefully. The company is a global innovator on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on brute-force attacks.

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 checked to find the right one.

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