Ballista is a new offering from SNI. What is interesting about this
product is the CAFE scripting language that comes with it. It allows you
to write custom script to generate TCP/IP packets.
Alternatively , you can check out ISS (www.iss.net) , they have a suite
of scanners (SafeSuite) which consists of a Web Security Scanner, A
Firewall Scanner , Intranet Scanner and System Security Scanner.
