Are you talking about ATM LAN or ATM WAN as they are different. I know that
there is an entry on the Enterasys Price list that is an ATM Sensor. I don't
know weather it is ATM LAN or WAN but I'm sure they'll tell you if you ask
them. I am currently testing Enterasys Dragon IDS and it is very flexible
(config files allow log dumping to SQL etc.) having now released version 5
(Different Architecture from 4 so be aware). The ATM sensor is sold as an
appliance (1U rack mountable) and is relatively simple to install (much
easier than installing the binaries :)).

I believe Enterasys' Dragon can handle ATM, as well. However, I thought
Niksun's device was more of forensics tool (traffic capture/replay) then a
NIDS device?
