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

An automated hacking attempt consists of an attacker submitting many passwords or passphrases with the hope of eventually guessing them. The attacker systematically checks all possible passwords and passphrases and tries to find the right one.
