Actually, you can't download it from the url below. You need to fill out a
form and then a "sales" person will contact you with download information.
Also, the information requested to be submitted to this company is somewhat
excessive, such as your phone number, organization name and address, and the
IP for your applied watch server (what am I missing here?). Sounds like more
unsolicited snail mail coming our way. 
There are no check boxes to refuse email or snail mail solicitations, and
there is no privacy policy anywhwere on the site. Their legal notice takes
you to their home page (hopefully just a minor web problem). Hopefully the
legal notice contains their privacy policy.....
All of this information is MANDATORY or the form won't submit. And you also
must put something into the "What is your company's biggest problem with
using Snort" box or it won't submit.

I would love to test this product, it looks like it may add some value. I
however will not release this amount of information (internal network ip's,
addresses, phone numbers) nor do I have the time to spend on telephone calls
with sales people just to be able to download a trial, that's my purchasing
departments job. I also want to be able to choose whether or not I receive
emails or snail mails from this company. I should be able to "opt-out" from
