Portswigger’s Burp Suite is popular for testing web application security because it is extensible and effective. It allows you to easily write your own plugins and combine advanced manual techniques with state-of-the-art automation. Burp Suite’s various tools work seamlessly together to support the entire testing process, from initial mapping and analysis of an application’s attack surface, to finding and exploiting security vulnerabilities.
Portswigger’s Burp Suite was developed by world-leading security experts. It is the world’s most widely used web security scanner with more than 25,000 customers. Powerful IAST technology lets Burp Scanner see when data is handled unsafely within the application. Burp can detect new vulnerabilities like SQL injection, XSS, and server-side template injection.
In addition to basic functionality, such as proxy server, scanner and intruder, the Burp Suite also contains a spider, repeater, decoder, comparer, extender and sequencer.
Burp’s web scanner supports the latest web application technologies including REST, JSON, AJAX and SOAP. The Burp scanner detects the most obscure and hard to reach vulnerabilities that can elude even the most powerful dynamic web scanners. Standard testing tools are often unable to reliably trigger vulnerabilities based on partial input validation or unusual input transformations, but Burp can.
