OS X El Capitan - lock account after failed login attempts

I understand that OS X does not have a lockout feature for a certain number of failed login attempts.  I've read that OS X Server can be used for this. Installing and configuring Server on my MacBook seems like overkill to achieve this single feature.  Are there other alternatives?
