PortSwigger Burp Suite Professional Review

Excellent Community version for skills mapping that is easy to setup and is stable

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution when we develop any of our software applications and host it with the website for external clients. All of the applications go through the vulnerability scanner.

What is most valuable?

Burp Suite is very helpful. The extension that it provides with the community version for the skills mapping is excellent.

What needs improvement?

The interface for external clients needs improvement.

Currently, the scanning is only available in the full version of Burp, and not in the Community version.

I would like the scanning included for free also.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for a year and a half.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's a stable solution. We have not had any issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not contacted technical support. 

We have not experienced any issues where we couldn't resolve them using our internal team.

We have not required any technical support.

When we compare it to other programs that we have such as OWAP Zap, we found Burp to be more suitable.

It is very easy to automate. It requires some configuration that has you follow step by step instructions. 

It can take four to five hours to go live.

Anyone with minimal knowledge and training can use this tool.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We are using the community version, which is free.

We use the community version and found that Burp was easier and more useful.

The interface is better in PortSwigger Burp.
