The statistics is provided by Syspeace, a service provider that fights brute-force attacks. Syspeace wants to make the digital world safer for businesses, one server at a time. Having collected and analyzed data on automated hacking attempts since 2012, Syspeace is a global trailblazer on the topic. The company believes that cyber security management doesn’t have to be complicated and expensive.

During the brute-force attack, 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 correct one.

To keep systems secure and block automated hacking attempts, Syspeace provides software that safeguards companies from IT theft, combined with outstanding customer support.
