"The most valuable feature is Burp Collaborator.""The solution has a pretty simple setup.""I have found this solution has more plugins than other competitors which is a benefit. You are able to attach different plugins to the security scan to add features. For example, you can check to see if there are any payment systems that exist on a server, or username and password brute force analysis.""The most valuable feature of PortSwigger Burp Suite Professional is the dashboard. It is very informative and you can receive all the information you need in one place. It's clear, well-defined, and organized. Anybody without any cybersecurity can use it.""I have found the best features to be the performance and there are a lot of additional plugins available.""The most valuable feature of PortSwigger Burp Suite Professional is the advanced features, user-friendly interface, and integration with other tools.""The extension that it provides with the community version for the skills mapping is excellent.""The automated scan is what I find most useful because a lot of customers will need it. Not every domain will be looking for complete security, they just need a stamp on the security key. For these kinds of customers, the scan works really well."

Cons
"From an automation point of view, it should have better clarity and be more user friendly."

More Parasoft SOAtest Cons →

"The pricing of the solution is quite high.""It should provide a better way to integrate with Jenkins so that DAST (dynamic application security testing) can be automated.""PortSwigger Burp Suite Professional can improve by having more features in the free version for beginners to try.""BurpSuite has some issues regarding authentication with OAT tokens that need to be improved.""PortSwigger Burp Suite Professional could improve the static code review.""We'd like to have more integration potential across all versions of the product.""There could be an improvement in the API security testing. There is another tool called Postman and if we had a built-in portal similar to Postman which captures the API, we would be able to generate the API traffic. Right now we need a Postman tool and the Burp Suite for performing API tests. It would be a huge benefit to be able to do it in a single UI.""One thing that is not up to the mark in PortSwigger is web application testing. I found some issues with its performance and reporting. They should work on these and give us a better outcome."
