How to protect VPN with pptp protocol

Hi, I have a server with two services reacheable from the outside: ssh and vpn with pptp protocol.
I protect SSH from brute force attacks using fail2ban. Is there something similar for vpn? How can I protect this server from an attack of this kind and at what risk I face having this type of service on my server?
