An automated hacking attempt 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 automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that safeguards firms from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
