During the last weeks there have been 19 percent more brute-force attacks than in the course of the 14 days prior in the world. By now, this year there have been 1,900 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. In the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has climbed up by 6.1 percent. That means the sum total of brute-force attacks in the world that were blocked by Syspeace was 1,700,000.

The data comes from Syspeace, a company that helps fight brute-force attacks. Syspeace saves enterprises time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to track down and prevent. Syspeace records all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers conscientiously. The company is a global trendsetter on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed information on brute-force attacks.

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

To keep problems out and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace offers software that shields enterprises from IT theft, combined with excellent customer support.
