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.

My only advice for anyone looking for a personal use case for testing Web application security is this is a good option.

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.
