The sum total of attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers shot up in the previous 14-day period in Spain as 440 automated hacking attempts per Windows servers were logged by Syspeace. That is to say, the automated hacking attempts escalated by 290 percent. The amount of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in Spain was 7,900.

Hong Kong and Italy have – for comparison purposes – been under increased attacks. With 200 blocked brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace the previous 14 days, Hong Kong has witnessed a surge of 790 percent compared to the previous 14 days. In Italy, the amount has risen by 270 percent to 2,300 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server.

Spain is under increasing attacks, but at the same time the attacks on Syspeace-secured Windows Servers have decreased all around the world. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have diminished by 17 percent in the world through the past two weeks. So far, this year there have been 1,500 brute-force attacks per Windows server secured by Syspeace in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the amount of brute-force attacks has increased by 8.7 percent. Simply put, the sum total of automated hacking attempts blocked by Syspeace in the world was 1,300,000.

The evidence is released 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.

The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

An brute-force attack consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of in the end guessing them. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the correct one.

To keep trouble out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that safeguards enterprises from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
