What you quoted and then said "Not really," to was pretty much the definition of a brute force attack - so I'm not sure what you're saying not really to.

Sure - the company themselves could get locked out by brute force detection - but if that happens and they have no way around it I'm not sure I'd entirely trust them to properly run and manage their infrastructure.

There's always a way in - such as console access via VPN. If the provider doesn't have console access - which would be odd for a company remote from their hardware not to have.

What was it that you were saying "Not really," to?
