Actually I think most all aftermarket alarm and alarm/remote-starter combos will arm themselves automatically, either as a programming option or as default right out of the box.
If you're adding any aftermarket system that includes Keyless Entry, connect its Lock and Unlock wires to the yellow and light-green wires (respectively) that attach to the outside key lock cylinder inside the driver'* (or passenger'*) door, instead of connecting to the wires at the interior door lock switch like the instructions probably tell you to do. That way, when you lock the car, it will think you're outside using a key, instead of inside pressing the interior switch, and so it will set the factory alarm system for you. (It will also arm the system if the car is locked using the _interior_ switch, but only if the door is open at the time.)
