The most valuable feature is the application security. It also has a reasonable price.

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

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.

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.

BurpSuite helps us to identify and fix silly mistakes that are sometimes introduced by our developers in their coding.

Some of the extensions, available using Burp Extender, are also very good and we have found issues by using them.

This solution has helped a lot in finding bugs and vulnerabilities, and the scanner is good enough for simple web apps.

This tool is more accurate than the other solutions that we use, and reports fewer false positives.

"The product is very good just the way it is; It has everything already well established and functions great. I can't see any way for this current version to be improved."

I would like to know if nowadays (2021) the license of Burp Suite Pro is worth the cost. Is it a good option to use OWASP Zap instead for testing security in web applications?

First things first both are having their own merits, however in my personal experience ZAP can replace your burpsuite for sure considering the License. Also as the latest ZAP versions are covering more advanced techniques and spidering patterns with lots of options in it, it is worth considering ZAP. However remember that burpsuite from latest versions with inbuilt chromium and it's emerging plugin support (Installable jars) you can use burp to the fullest and you can keep it as a swiss knife for your web and app pentesting. Couple of extensions in burp pro are interesting especially the race condition one. I always prefer using Burp and at instances I go with ZAP.

Yes OWASP ZAP is a good option as it's an open source so always preferred but Burp Suite Pro  will give you more options, its one of the best tool to have for pentesters so defo worth it.
