Alright,
I am well aware of the glory of self education but am still interested in learning what tools exist to date that do this type of automated work.

Get your employer to reimburse the purchase of a bunch of O'Riley books from Amazon and learn Perl/Python yourself. It's amazing how fast the brain absorbs information when you're sufficiently motivated.

Nessus is easily scriptable, and with what's on CPAN, it's trivial to get nessus data into MySQL and report against it. Integration with Metaspolit is also trivial (as Metasploit modules are all in Perl).

Remember the old addage ... "teach a man to fish...".
