In Colombia, the sum total has climbed up by 34 percent to 4,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured server.

The attacks on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have shown a slight increase all around the world. Simply put, Ireland is not alone with the problem. The automated hacking attempts on Windows servers secured by Syspeace have risen by 12 percent in the world throughout the two weeks prior. Up until today, this year there have been 2,200 automated hacking attempts per Syspeace-secured Windows Server in the world. Compared to the same period last year, the number of automated hacking attempts has climbed up by 8.1 percent.

The data originates 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 detect and prevent. Syspeace tracks all the global Syspeace-secured Windows Servers carefully. The company is a global pioneer on the topic since 2012, having collected and analyzed statistics on brute-force attacks.

During the brute-force attack, an attacker submits many passwords or passphrases, hoping to ultimately get them right. Each and every possible password and passphrase is systematically inspected to find the correct one.

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