I would recommend Tenable Security's Nessus Scanner with Direct Feed.
Nessus has the capability to perform local checks on machines and compare
them with different compliance standards.  They currently have over 100
different compliance policies that you can use and customize for your needs.

While Nessus is free, the direct feed for plugins will cost you only $1200
annually.  This includes email support as well.

Subject: network policy checking

Hello fellow pen-testers,

I am looking for tools that perform network policy checking. Specifically,
tools that allow the user to define a policy and then test the network
elements to see if they adhere to this policy. As one might guess, this can
be accomplished either via config file checking (passive) or actual network
testing (active, via SNMP etc). 
I am interested in both flavors, if they are available. These tools can be
commercial or open-source/free/shareware. 
While it is a broad requirement, this hypothetical tool will primarily be
looking at routers, firewalls, etc. 

Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts.

Regards,
SC.
