Black Box penetration testing software

I need a good penetration testing software for our web servers. Preferably one that is inexpensive.  Most I have been able to find are nearly $10,000 or more. That cost would be prohibitive.

Have you tried metasploit or acunitex? I don't think they're that expensive.

It's usually cheaper to hire a company specialized in security testing/audit.

Any suggestions on a company? The ones I have talked to want  $10,000 plus to perform a scan and want to set up to repetitively scan. We need quarterly scans and third party is not required.

The problem isn't the software. 99% of website pentesting software out there is free or at least has a free trial version.

The problem is gaining the skills to use it - if you want software you can just point at a site and get the same class of answer you would get from an experienced pentester, you are in for a very long wait; even the best and most expensive software needs to be configured to perform the appropriate fuzzing and SQLi attacks.

I agree with Dave, if you want a truly accurate pentest on your website/network you're going to want to hire a firm that specializes in it. Some tools and automation can miss things only an experienced tester can see.

Or if you are on a budget but have the time - learn those skills. Everything you need is on the internet for free, you just have to be willing to put in the hours to learn it.

Thanks, it looks like acunetix is going to be the solution for us.
