this is all great if it is an online brute force attack but this dosent do anything to stop someone from getting the 
password hashes and copying to their usb drive and taking them home and hacking away at them. The brute force attacks 
are esy to stop with effective password and lockout policies.

You could turn on auditing or logging of whatever resources are used to
manage the passwords.

A scan of the resulting logs looking for a large number of attempts in a
short period from a single source would give you a basic idea that
something happened.  

Or are you looking for an alarm of some sort that notifies you in real
time?

How can someone detect a password cracking tool on a network?
