PortSwigger Burp Valuable Features

I like the way the tool has been designed. Once I capture the proxy, I'm able to transfer across, all the requested information that is there. I can send across the request to the 'Repeater' feature. I put in malicious payloads and then see how the application responds to it. More than that, the Repeater and Intruder are really awesome features on BurpSuite. For example, if I'm going to test for a SQL injection, I have certain payloads that are trying to break into the application. I make use of these predefined payloads which come as part of the tool are really useful for us to use and see how the application behaves. We are able to approximate well to see if the application is breaking through at any point in time. So the Repeater and the Intruder, are great features that are there. More than that I think the entire community support is really fabulous. As well as of the number of plug-ins that people have written for the tool. Those have been standouts. Community support is really strong. We see a lot of plug-ins that are made available that work along with the tool. View full review »

Burp is the best web application penetration testing tool that I have ever used. Although all the features of Burp are very useful, 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. Another, very interesting and quite extensible feature is Intruder. The way you can customize your payloads to suit your penetration testing needs is simply outstanding. The best thing is that all features are available just out-of-the-box and at a very nominal price. View full review »

There are several features that I like about this solution. The most valuable feature is that it has support for add-ons where we can add extra little scripts to the tool to perform more automated testing. I like using the Repeater feature to perform proxy testing, and the Repeaters have dashboards now. The add-ons are compatible with the dashboards, as well. View full review »

The auto scanning feature provides really good details about issues that it finds. Crawling web applications using Burp Spider, Target Site Map, automating customized attack with Burp Intruder, and manipulating parameters with Burp Repeater are the most useful and used features. View full review »

The most valuable feature of this solution is the scanning functionality. Some of the extensions, available using Burp Extender, are also very good and we have found issues by using them. Burp Intruder is another very good feature in this solution. View full review »

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. View full review »
