How to have Android 6.0 phone wipe data after too many failed login attempts?

I worry about what would happen if someone stole my phone...EVERYTHING is on there. I know that I can manually wipe the device remotely using Android Device Manager, but can I set it up so the phone will do it automatically after excessive failed login attempts?
As strife2211 answered you can use the Android Device Manager to lock, ring or wipe data remotely from the device. Here's additional info:
Android Device Manager in Google Play.

Someone actually stole my mom's phone, I used the GPS and actually found the block they were on, and pinpointed the part of the house they were in. They denied having the phone, so I used the security feature and made it panic... Busted.
