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. With the help of the BurpSuite tool, we are very well ahead to see if the application is going to break 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 »

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 most valuable feature is the application security. It also has a reasonable price. It has an end product and a repeater. Other solutions don't offer options like these. View full review »
