The report doesn’t lie — the amount of brute-force attacks in Pennsylvania has increased slightly in the course of the 14 days prior. According to evidence from Syspeace-secured Windows Servers, there was an escalation of 10 percent in brute-force attacks per server. In contrast, there was a big drop of 23 percent in the whole USA.

The amount of attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace grew slightly in the course of the two weeks prior in Pennsylvania as 1,800 brute-force attacks per Windows servers were recorded by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts went up slightly by 10 percent. Syspeace blocked 6,900 brute-force attacks in Pennsylvania. In the state’s measured history, this is the 13th highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period.

There has been, in comparison, an increase of the sum total of automated hacking attempts in Washington and Mississippi. With 3,100 blocked automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server the last fortnight, Washington has seen a growth of 19 percent in comparison with the previous 14-day period. In Mississippi, the amount has shot up by 8.4 percent to 160 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

Pennsylvania is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the USA. The automated hacking attempts on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased by 23 percent in the USA through the past two weeks. So far, this year there have been 1,700 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the USA. The automated hacking attempts have decreased by 19 percent on a year-to-year comparison. That is to say, the number of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the USA was 810,000.

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

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to finally get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically checked to find the right one.

To avoid problems and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that protects firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
