I've used Nessus before. It takes a bit to setup, but has a pretty comprehensive set of tests.

nmap is great for giving you the ports that are open and what is running on them

WebInspect is pretty good, but pricey. It takes a lot of handholding as well, not a lot of automated use.

  • Why the -1? I'll take that you don't like it, but at least leave a comment! – Bill Weiss Aug 16 '10 at 19:09

It's not free, but McAfee Secure does an excellent job and provides very detailed reporting.
