So you probably want a free one tool.

if I were you I'd check out burp suite. It can help you assess the security of your application at a very deep level if you know what you are doing. If you want to pay for something like a scanner, well I can't really recommend one. I have yet to find one that I'm at all impressed by aside from *maybe* NTOspider... but I'm still on the fence there...

Kevin,
Are you looking to pentest your own web application or someone else's? Its an important question because the answer will determine the tool.

What does everyone consider the best pen tool for testing web servers?
I have tried Nessus.
What tool(s) do you recommend?
