There are multiple commercial solutions available which would satisfy your
PCI requirements; WebInspect, Qualys, WatchGuard to name a few of the Best
of Breed. However, the best choice really depends on your internal
security expertise and ability to translate tool results output to PCI
compliant-ese or the tool's built-in reporting capabilities.
My personal recommendation would be WebInspect on the strength of the tool
from a purely security focus but if you are looking for plug n play
solution which outputs results in PCI format to run past your auditors
your best bet may be Qualys.
Hope that helps some. If you have more questions please feel free to ping

I do not know what is the latest and greatest, but our auditor
informed us that Nessus would no longer cut it.
The scanner must satisfy PCI requirements, so if you have worked or
working on a PCI project - I'm open to recommendations.
