Azure API Management

APIM is useful for the standard scenarios:
1) Securing your back-end APIs - If you have a legacy back-end web service that has a basic authentication scheme, you can add some additional security by placing APIM in front, and requiring subscription keys. Leverage your existing firewall to ensure only your APIM instance can communicate with your back-end API, and you've basically added a layer of protection.
2) Lift and shift - there are always going to be clients that don't want to update their clients to use a newer API; in some cases you can make a newer API look like an older one by implementing some complex policies in APIM. You can also do the opposite, making older APIs look new, such as making an XML back-end accept both JSON and XML.
3) Centralizing your APIs - if you've acquired another company and want to make their API set look as if it's a part of the larger whole, APIM is an easy way to provide a consistent front-end interface for developers.

Burp Suite

I will say that Burp Suite and or Burp Suite Pro are REQUIRED for any web application penetration test. While there are other tools out there that are similar, none have the range of abilities and tool set that Burp has. Burp suite also makes it easy to use. Everything is laid out in a manner that facilitates efficiency and ease of use.

Pros

Azure API Management

  • Easy commissioning of APIs.
  • Great policies to control access.
  • Easy mock services for testing.

Burp Suite

  • Burp Suite is fairly quick to perform an attack on a website. I have found it very thorough for the time it takes to run an attack.
  • Burp Suite can spider a website very quickly and it usually finds most of the web pages on a website. Once it has spidered a website, it allows you to not attack any page it found during the scan. This is very useful when there are certain parts of a website you do not want to attack.
  • Burp Suite allow you easily log into a website as the first step in spidering and attacking. This is useful for us since most of our websites require a login before we can scan the internal pages of a website.

Cons

Azure API Management

  • Lack of robustness is a bit of an issue. Several other providers offer more options and capabilities, but then, they are lacking in interface ease.
  • As with anything Azure, pricing is really hard to stay on top of. I always find that you really don’t know what you’re paying for until you get the bill. Having an excellent Azure Administrator can help resolve that.
  • Integrating with app services outside of Azure can be a challenge, or at least much more challenging than just using Azure App Services.

Burp Suite

  • The interface is a big problem: No matter how many features a software provides you, if the features are not well presented, you will miss most of them when they are actually required. The presentation of the software should be improvised and made more presentable.
  • Tutorial videos for beginners: This software lacks a lot in tutorials. A beginner almost wastes most of the time in finding and understanding the features and the implementation of the same. The software vendor should work on providing more in-depth videos so that people can learn and understand the concepts.

Given this tool's wide area of testing functionality for mobile and web applications, it's a great tool to invest in for security testing. Though it lacks documentation to carry out particular vulnerability findings which are very challenging for a new user of this tool

BurpSuite does not have an amazing customer support. All the major help that you will find is from public forums and Google. Although you will find all the required information on Google, still at time professional support helps you solve the problem in much less time and make your operations go smoothly.

Alternatives Considered

Azure API Management

Azure APIM vs Amazon API Gateway:
1) Azure APIM was a complete package that included a developer portal.
2) We are very Microsoft centric - so the Microsoft product suite aligned very well with our business needs.
3) It was faster and easier to stand up Azure APIM for testing than it was for the Amazon API Gateway.

Burp Suite

The only other tool I use that works like Burp Suite is the OWASP ZAP. It works a lot like Burp but just has a different layout. I prefer how Burp has the tabs for Repeater, Intruder, Decoder, ect.

Return on Investment

Azure API Management

  • We have one-stop access to all services.
  • We can stop DDoS, Man in the middle attack, etc.

Burp Suite

  • Positive impact, time to complete security development stage is decreased.
  • Very positive impact on budgeting for external penetration testing. We can do the bulk of the common testing ourselves now.
