Quotes From Members Comparing IBM Security AppScan vs. PortSwigger Burp

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
The static scans are good, and the SaaS as well.It provides a better integration for our ecosystem.You can easily find particular features and functions through the UI.We leverage it as a quality check against code.We are now deploying less defects to production.Usually when we deploy the application, there is a process for ethical hacking. The main benefit is that, the ethical hacking is almost clean, every time. So it's less cost, less effort, less time to production.It has certainly helped us find vulnerabilities in our software, so this is priceless in the end.I like the recording feature.

I personally love its capability to automatically and accurately detect vulnerabilities. So, I would say it is the Burp scanner that is THE most powerful, valuable, and an awesome feature.

Cons
There is not a central management for static and dynamic.Visibility is an issue for us. Our partners do not know we have integrations with some of IBM products.I would like to see the roadmap for this product. We are still waiting to see it as we have only so many resources.I would love to see more containers. Many of the tools are great, they require an amount of configuration, setup and infrastructure. If most the applications were in a container, I think everything would be a little bit faster, because all our clients are now using containers.​IBM Security AppScan Source is rather hard to use​.There are so many lines of code with so many different categories that I am likely to get lost. ​It's a little bit basic when you talk about the Web Services. If AppScan improved its maturity on Web Services testing, that would be good.I think being able to search across more containers, especially some of the docker elements. We need a little tighter integration there. That's the only thing I can see at this point.

The one feature that I would like to see in Burp is active scanning of REST based web services. A lot of organizations are providing APIs to access their services to support different business models like SaaS. Scanning these APIs is still a challenge for many security product companies.
