The data is provided by Syspeace, a company that helps fight automated hacking attempts. Syspeace saves businesses time, effort, and money by blocking attacks that otherwise take many hours of repetitive, manual labor to detect and prevent. Syspeace scans all the global Windows servers secured by Syspeace thoroughly. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed evidence on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many different passwords and passphrases in the system, hoping to in the end get them right. The attacker systematically inspects all possible passwords and passphrases to find the right one.

To keep problems out and block brute-force attacks, Syspeace offers software that shields companies from IT theft, combined with exceptional customer support.
