In Sweden, the sum total has risen by 30 percent to 1,200 brute-force attacks per Syspeace-secured server.

Ireland is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have decreased all around the world. There have been 17 percent less automated hacking attempts in the world on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers through the past two weeks compared to the 14 days prior. Up until today, this year there have been 1,500 automated hacking attempts per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. During the same period last year, the number of brute-force attacks has grown by 8.7 percent. That is to say, the amount of brute-force attacks blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,300,000.

The evidence source is 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 discover and prevent. Syspeace monitors all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers meticulously. The company is a global innovator 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 checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

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