Automated hacking attempts on Windows servers in Rhode Island have built up through the last fortnight. The brute-force attacks have climbed up by 37 percent during the previous 14 days, according to information from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers. However, there was a big decrease of 23 percent in the whole USA.

The amount of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased greatly throughout the 14 days prior in Rhode Island as 250 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That is to say, the brute-force attacks increased greatly by 37 percent. The amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Rhode Island was 520.

For the sake of comparison, brute-force attacks in Nevada and Georgia have gone up. With 150 blocked automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace the two weeks prior, Nevada has witnessed a surge of 69 percent in comparison with the two weeks prior. In Georgia, the amount has increased by 34 percent to 340 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the USA, brute-force attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have shown a big fall, but Rhode Island sees the opposite. In the last weeks, there have been 23 percent less brute-force attacks than through the two weeks prior in the USA. By now, this year there have been 1,700 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have decreased by 19 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That means the number of brute-force attacks in the USA that were blocked by Syspeace was 810,000.

The evidence originates from Syspeace, a service provider that fights automated hacking attempts. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for firms, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

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 inspected to find the right one.

To keep systems secure and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace provides software that protects companies from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
