A tool or program that validates shapefiles

I am creating a large volume of new shapefiles. Sometimes they have intersections, lines hanging off polygons, unclosed polygons, etc. 

Is there a way to automatically verify that they don't have issues like the ones mentioned above? A series of tools you can use in ArcMap? Or a program you can run the shapefiles through?

Validating manually by looking closely at every vertex can be maddening.
