Quite a varied list.  As one respondent put it (possibly paraphrased)
"security testing is like underwear, everyone has their own preference".
In this case we are likely to go with one of the vendors suggested by
our client who has done work for them before and who they feel
comfortable with.

Thanks for your feedback, everyone, and I hope I didn't miss any.
