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.

PortSwigger Burp Suite

Burp Suite is very well suited for web apps, mobile apps (Android and iOS) & API security testing. It is well suited for the dynamic analysis of these. Even though it can be used for thick client pentesting as well, I would advice other tools for it as configuring Burp Suite for thick client can sometimes be a difficult task.

Pros

Azure API Management

  • Selective data exposure as it exposes a set of data allowed by the owner by applying authentication and usage limits.
  • It will help us to keep all our APIs behind a single static IP and protect them with a set of keys.
  • Integration and deployment of various APIs are so simple to manage by Azure so that makes our work a lot easier.

PortSwigger 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

  • We cannot automate the network infrastructure easily. At least we had issues with creating end to end APIM using Terraform.

PortSwigger Burp Suite

  • One gripe I have, and this may be because its built for applications/browsers, is that it doesn't handle other traffic. I would love to see burp move towards a full Man in the middle tool

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

It’s a great tool, and so easy to seamlessly connect into your current Azure world that it’s hard not to look at it or even test the waters with it. It’s priced well, and is feature-rich enough to accomplish most tasks. I think the ease of having everything together and the ability to link so many different services under a subscription is the magic of Azure, and it’s hard not to make good use of that.

Burp was getting us more accurate results. This doesn't mean that the other tools are bad. They just didn't suit our company. Since our products had many business logic bases testing requirements, it was hard for other tools to perform. Burp on the other had worked perfectly assisting the tester with required support.
