Ability to reject user access at proxy before authentication check

We would like the ability to create a proxy filter (blacklist) to block unknown user names that result in failed authentication attempts. Many of these attempts come from both domestic and foreign nations, so IP whitelisting is not useful to restrict this. A goal of the requested feature is to drop network connection based on user names identified as frequently and repetitively trying to gain access (bruteforce) to the system. This is in accordance with NYS gov't security policy initiative to apply the principle of least privilege to IT systems/services exposed to public networks.
