PortSwigger Burp Suite Professional Review

Is fast, stable, and budget-friendly, but the dashboard needs improvement


What is our primary use case?

We use PortSwigger Burp Suite Professional for security testing and for doing vulnerability scanning mechanisms.

How has it helped my organization?

It has partially improved the organization requirement however, The scanning mechanism is pretty slow and takes long duration to scan. Moreover, The server hangs up while scanning. 

What is most valuable?

This solution provides a very good mechanism for fixing interval time. For example, we can create a schedule, and the schedule runs on time. PortSwigger Burp Suite does not hamper the node of the server, and it does not shut down the server if it is running.

It is quite fast and easy to install as well.

It is also a budget-friendly tool.

What needs improvement?

The reporting needs to be improved; it is very bad.

The dashboard feature or the front-end of the tool does not look good and is not very creative or user-friendly. It looks complicated when we log in to the tool. It looks boring and outdated.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution within the last 12 months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability-wise, improvements have been made, and it is reliable.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is not so easy to get a hold of. We had to learn most of the things through the documentation. However, the documentation is not readily available online. We have to create new calls for it, and we have to email them. So, if you have a problem, then it can take some time to resolve it.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

No dint use. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward and took about one to two weeks.

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

It's a budget-based tool, and it's a pretty decent budget tool for the mid-version of the application. It's a lower priced tool that we can rely on with good standard mechanisms. We have a yearly license.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?
