Burp Suite provides different licenses. They have open-source free-to-use licenses, which can be used by anyone. Then, they have a standalone license that, as a security professional, you can use. They have their Enterprise version as well. I use the professional version. Initially, when we were using Burp Suite, I hardly remember the version we started at. The actual costs vary from country to country, however, I would say it's cheaper if you compare it to other DAST solutions and tools. Compared to other web applications assessment tools Burp suite is a solid tool for web based penetration testing for a reasonable price.

The pricing of the solution is quite high. Costs are based on their subscription model. The pricing affects whether a client will engage with me and the solution or not. It could be a deal-breaker. Budgets are often tight.

It is expensive for us in Brazil because the currency exchange rate from a dollar to a Brazilian Real is quite steep.

It's a very unique way of pricing. It varies depending on the type of testing you are performing. Manual testing is expensive, but as we don't have another option, it seems to be fair.

I believe the price is good where it's at right now. They have a very competitive price point although recently they've been incrementally increasing in price. It's still competitive.

At $400 or $500 per license paid annually, it is a very cheap tool.

Licensing costs are about $450/year for one use. For larger organizations, they would be able to test against multiple applications simultaneously while others might have multiple versions of applications which needs to be tested which is why there is an enterprise edition. We might have more than five to six people in the organizations doing security testing. You can give full-base access to them and control who uses your licenses. It depends on the stream of projects, business pipeline that I get, but security is not something that done all throughout the year. We get it in cycles. We pace it in such a way that from our different customers that we work with, we actually have one project running throughout the year. I might do a project for Client X during the month of let's say January to February. Then for another client, I might have something lined up for April to May. So with a single license, I am able to maximize the usage very well.
