If Microsoft's OS has no option to do so, never heard of any third party software providing such a program.

You need to set an Account Lockout Policy. Make sure that you allow automatic reset of locked out accounts or you could find yourself in trouble.

You probably also want to consider enforcing policies regarding password complexity, minimum length, and maximum and minimum age.
