PortSwigger Burp Previous Solutions

I've used different tools like Acunetix. The first tool that we started with was Acunetix. Acunetix as quite expensive, first and foremost. It's more suitable for web application scanning and penetration. PortSwigger's has a larger play beyond applications, it supports REST API and all that stuff, that kind of support is great with PortSwigger. The kind of mechanism that's there is you can just capture the flow if the application. They usually have what is called as a flow sequence in proxy history with which all the user actions are captured. That's all that is done by the tool completely. Once that information is there, much you can control exploit requests with the tool. Whatever the tool shows, I have the opportunity to throttle and change payloads and see how the application behaves. We used the online web scanners with Acunetix. We found it a little difficult and that was one reason why. In fact, when we got the contract with the client and we evaluated multiple tools, that's why we chose PortSwigger's BurpSuite.

We also have OWASP Zap and we continue to use these two tools. Zap has a heads up display within its own browser, which is a very good feature. Zap is also completely free, whereas Burp has a free version but it also has licenses available. For the most part, we use open-source solutions, which are free of charge. View full review »

Before Burp I was manually proxying the data myself. I have experience making my own tools for security assessment. Burp is pretty convenient, and it's one of the most popular tools, which is why I began using it. I also use Wireshark, which is pretty effective too. View full review »
