PortSwigger Burp Suite Professional Pros

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.

The way they do the research and they keep their profile up to date is great. They identify vulnerabilities and update them immediately.

The feature that we have found most valuable is that it comes with pre-set configurations. They have a set of predefined options where you can pick one and start scanning. We also have the option of creating our own configurations, like how often do the applications need to be scanned.

With the Extender Tab, if you know how to code then you can create a plugin and add it to Burp.

I find the attack model quite amazing, where I can write my scripts and load my scripts as well, which helps quite a bit. All the active scanning that it can do is also quite a lot helpful. It speeds up our vulnerability assessment and penetration testing. Right now, I am enjoying its in-browser, which also helps quite a bit. I'm always confused about setting up some proxy, but it really is the big solution we all want.

Director - Head of Delivery Services at Ticking Minds Technology Solutions Pvt Ltd
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.

It should provide a better way to integrate with Jenkins so that DAST (dynamic application security testing) can be automated.

The biggest drawback is reporting. It's not so good. I can download them, but they're not so informative.

One area that can be improved, when compared to alternative tools, is that they could provide different reporting options and in different formats like PDF or something like that.

There should be a heads up display like the one available in OWASP Zap.

The Auto Scanning features should be updated more frequently and should include the latest attack vectors.

I am from Brazil. The currency exchange rate from a dollar to a Brazilian Real is quite steep. It is almost six to one. It would be good if it can be sold in the local currency, and its price is cheaper for us.
