Limit web interface login attempts

due to SAS 70 audit requirements i must enforce an attempted login limit on my web interface, which runs on the same box as the secure gateway.   W2k3 on IIS6.  WI 4.0.  SG 3.0.  Get me pointed in the right direction?

Limit as in the amount of times they can log in in a certain amount of seconds/minutes or amount of login attempts and then lockout?  Does SAS have those limitations built in?  Usually you should look to your application to provide restrictions and not your Web Interface.

Does Active Directory "Login Attempts" satisfy this?

Thanks, I found this yesterday, and it's good info, but from testing i've done i don't think it's effective at the web interface login level.

for comliance we use two factor authentication fron aladdin / safenet.
this solution (safeword) has build-in attack logging and protection.
