    Both of these systems are within one /21 and get attacked
regularly. I run Denyhosts on them, and update the central server once
an hour with attacking IPs, and obviously also download the public
hosts.deny list.

How about combining denyhosts with netfilter through its plugin mechanism ? In
addition to adding entry to hosts.deny file, you can also play with netfilter
and 'recent' extension.
