Without wishing to seem flippant, no security tool is going to be either up to date or as effective in revealing problems as the real thing.  As soon as you connect the site to the internet this will all be done for you at no charge by black hats trying to break in.  Just watch the logs and defeat the exploits as they are used.

(This is good practice since you'll have to do it every day anyway as long as the site is on the internet.)

And be sure you have daily full backups.

I would have thought you will do some hygiene check and SSLTest is one option as it surface the weakness in crypto SSL/TLS which may be easily exploited. You can have a check of health on known threat using VirusTotal too. Specifically for the scanner and tool, OWASP has some good listing hereTool such as sqlmap  for testing SQLi, another for the wider coverage of test cases is w3af. It is a Web Application Attack and Audit Framework. It does attempt to find and exploit known web application vulnerabilities.
