I suggest that you get a new auditor. There is nothing in the PCI
standards that preclude this tool. What you need to do is have a
methodology for them.

Subject: Web Application Vulnerability Scanner

My company is looking to invest on a web application vulnerability
scanner for PCI compliance.

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.
