The automated hacking attempts have climbed up by 22 percent in the course of the previous 14 days, according to data from Windows servers secured by Syspeace. However, there was a slight decrease of 16 percent in the whole world.

In New Zealand, the sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers increased greatly throughout the last fortnight as 16,000 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were registered by Syspeace. That means the automated hacking attempts increased noticeably by 22 percent. The amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in New Zealand was 16,000. In the country’s measured history, this is the highest number of attempted brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace for a single 14-day period.

For the sake of comparison, Colombia and United Kingdom have been under increased attacks. With 3,100 blocked brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server the past two weeks, Colombia has seen a rise of 27 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In United Kingdom, the sum total has shot up by 22 percent to 1,400 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace.

All around the world, automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight decline, but New Zealand sees the opposite. The brute-force attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have declined by 16 percent in the world through the last fortnight. Up until now, this year there have been 2,500 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Throughout the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has risen by 9.4 percent. That is to say, the amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 2,200,000.

The statistics is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves firms 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 conscientiously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts.

During the automated hacking attempt, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to eventually get them right. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases 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.
