I've never heard of them, but that doesn't mean they aren't any good. Most IDS systems use SNORT as their backend and sell their own sigs and a front-end. We used to use Snort (now SourceFire/Talos), but the detection engine is in the stone-ages. We use Suricata now, a much more modern and capable IDS that is still FOSS.
Here is Gartner's 2015 magic quadrant on IPS systems (most IDS's can be used in IPS mode)

ESentire however looks like a HIPS, which is much different than traditional IDS. ESentire would be more like Bromium, Invinvea, Carbon Black, Bit-9, Cylance. HIPS is the old name for "next generation" endpoint protection.
