Feel free to put Metasploit Pro to the test. We provide a competitive
level of exploit coverage (with all exploits available under the open
source framework) and strive to go beyond just "pop a shell" and solve
real needs in the penetration testing and vulnerability management
space. This includes a strong focus on multi-user collaboration, import
of dozens of tool exports (NeXpose, Retina, etc), customizable
reporting, extensive password testing (brute force, replay, and spot
testing), and a wide range of features that we find useful when
conducting our own engagements. We dogfood our products religiously and
a large portion of the development team consists of former penetration
tests, including some with DoD experience.

We provide a free trial if you want to conduct your own evaluation:

The Metasploit Pro development team is the same group of folks that work
on the Metasploit Framework and are highly active within the security
community. We have a policy of transparency that no commercial
competitors can offer. Metasploit Pro sales directly fund the continued
development of the open source Metasploit Framework too :)
