in that case, you might want to run snort in IPS mode instead of IDS mode... 
that puts snort inline of your traffic where it can drop the traffic or let it 

an alternative would be to use another device as a sniffer/firewall and let 
snort and the firewall communicate (somehow) so the firewall can update its 
settings for blocking...

security onion does a lot (a whole lot!) and may be able to talk so various 
firewalls... snort is part of security onion and it comes with the database and 
analysis stuff as well as being able to clone off files being transferred so 
they can be analyzed, too...

i don't use security onion but i have looked at it in the past...
