Syspeace monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers meticulously. The company is a global trailblazer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on automated hacking attempts.

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of ultimately guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.
