I would advice you to stop automated Pentest, and think like an evil
hacker would, and go manual.

Hi list,

So we just had our annual audit, and one of the findings that came up is
server-side pen-tests. We already carry out quarterly ASV scans & yearly
pentest of our external IP addresses, where we fell short was the lack of
internal pentests. The question is: what tools can I use to carry out these
tests? Especially tests directed at SQL servers & file servers etc. A tool
that can generate easy to read reports would be really nice. Any input will
be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
