What is SSHGuard?
SSHGuard monitors services through their logging activity. It reacts to messages about dangerous activity by blocking the source address with the local firewall. SSHGuard employs a clever parser that can transparently recognize several logging formats at once (syslog, syslog-ng, metalog, multilog, raw messages), and detects attacks for many services out of the box, including SSH, several ftpds, and dovecot. It can operate all the major firewalling systems, and features support for IPv6, whitelisting, suspension, and log message authentication.

A MUST if you have ssh port-forwarding. Simple to set up, and even scans logs from before the install to find and block past attackers.
