For pentesting scenarios, this is the number one tool. It can capture the request, and there are so many functions that are very good for that. For example, a black box satellite host.

The most valuable feature is Burp Collaborator.

PortSwigger Burp Suite does not hamper the node of the server, and it does not shut down the server if it is running.

I have found the best features to be the performance and there are a lot of additional plugins available.

I find the attack model quite amazing, where I can write my scripts and load my scripts as well, which helps quite a bit. All the active scanning that it can do is also quite a lot helpful. It speeds up our vulnerability assessment and penetration testing. Right now, I am enjoying its in-browser, which also helps quite a bit. I'm always confused about setting up some proxy, but it really is the big solution we all want.

The extension that it provides with the community version for the skills mapping is excellent.

There is no other tool like it. I like the intuitiveness and the plugins that are available.

The feature that we have found most valuable is that it comes with pre-set configurations. They have a set of predefined options where you can pick one and start scanning. We also have the option of creating our own configurations, like how often do the applications need to be scanned.

With the Extender Tab, if you know how to code then you can create a plugin and add it to Burp.

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.

"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."
