This is a very complex task. No tool that's flexible enough will be easy to use.

Further, there is no one tool that does all of this. Some things to look at, however, are:

Cenzic's Hailstorm (www.cenzic.com), which tests over-the-network data.

Sanctum's AppScan (www.sanctuminc.com), which tests web applications.

Nessus (www.nessus.org), which does general network-centric system testing.

NGSSoftware (www.nextgenss.com), which has various database-testing tools

Nessus is your best starting point, then. It does at least part of what the other things do and is easily extensible.

Some other open-source and/or free tools are:
o  Wisker CGI-scanner (www.wiretrip.net/rfp)
o  OWASP WebScarab (www.owasp.org/webscarab)
o  SPIKE fuzzer creation kit (www.atstake.com/research/tools/vulnerability_scanning/)

The SANS Reading Room (www.sans.org/rr/) also has lots and lots of information has papers on application and database security lockdown/testing. Check out the Application & Database Security and Auditing & Assessment areas.
