I am looking for a NIDS, my budget is as of yet undefined, but I have only heard of Cisco IDS, Stealthwatch, and Snort. What else is there to look at, appliance or software based is fine, but it must have the ability to inject response packets.

Basically, I need a list of whats out there.

The folks who make the free IDS Snort, also make a wonderful hardware appliance and will train you on how to deploy/administer/maintain it.

There is also the 3rd party addon to Snort, SnortSAM, that will update your firewall's or router ACL's based on alerts/triggers you assign in Snort. http://www.snortsam.net/
While it's not exactly "..it must have the ability to inject response packets" it does drop/block traffic very quickly, and you can define for how long the block last's.
