    I am not sure that I understand your question, but I will answer as I understood.

    If you have complete Information security department, then it is recommended that you perform penetration test from time to time.

    What I mean by complete Information Security Department that includes Security Operation Center (SOC), MMS, IPS, IDS, FWs, ...

    Hope this what you asked for:-)

    There are packages you can purchase from companies such as sourcefire or cisco and mcafee. Even Symantec is in on the bandwagon.
    I would reccomend the vendor you feel most comfotable with and who has a good reputation.
    A good consultant should be in your plan as well, CyberTrust fromerly TrueSecure is the one which comes to my mind first...

    If you don't have an internal IT/Security, then you should look to get either someone qualified or contract a 3rd party who offer "managed services".

    depending on the needs of your organization, you would possibly require some of these services:
    Firewall, Antivrus, Content Filtering, Remote access VPN, proxy, messaging....etc etc

    There are multiple organisations which provide these services, so look up someone in your area and if your a multinational, then you can talk to me :-)
