How do I protect myself against brute-force attacks when using Cockpit server administration?

Yi Mei Wang asked in Servers

When using Cockpit, I feel that it opens up a big vulnerability as the browser login allows unlimited attempts to login. Once the brute-force is successful, the attacker will be able to run commands with sudo privilege using this same password. Is there a good way to protect against this?
