We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

BurpSuite helps us to identify and fix silly mistakes that are sometimes introduced by our developers in their coding.The way they do the research and they keep their profile up to date is great. They identify vulnerabilities and update them immediately.The Spider is the most useful feature. It helps to analyze the entire web application, and it finds all the passes and offers an automated identification of security issues.Once I capture the proxy, I'm able to transfer across. All the requested information is there. I can send across the request to what we call a repeater, where I get to ready the payload that I send to the application. Put in malicious content and then see if it's responding to it.Some of the extensions, available using Burp Extender, are also very good and we have found issues by using them.This solution has helped a lot in finding bugs and vulnerabilities, and the scanner is good enough for simple web apps.This tool is more accurate than the other solutions that we use, and reports fewer false positives."The product is very good just the way it is; It has everything already well established and functions great. I can't see any way for this current version to be improved."

The Auto Scanning features should be updated more frequently and should include the latest attack vectors.The biggest drawback is reporting. It's not so good. I can download them, but they're not so informative.The number of false positives need to be reduced on the solution.The biggest improvement that I would like to see from PortSwigger that today many people see as an issue in their testing. There might be a feature which might be desired.I would like to see a more optimized solution, as it currently uses a lot of CPU power and memory.The scanner and crawler need to be improved.There is a lot to this product, and it would be good if when you purchase the tool, they can provide us with a more extensive user manual.The Initial setup is a bit complex.
