BeyondTrust Network Security Scanner, powered by Retina (Legacy)

Retina Network Security Scanner is well suited for any environment and infrastructure that would like to expose security deficiencies across their network as well as visualize vulnerabilities as they pertain to assets in their environment. I cannot think of any scenario that would not be appropriate for this product. Since the product carries over to pretty much all assets in your environment, I don't know off the top of y head what it wouldn't be appropriate for.

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

BeyondTrust Network Security Scanner, powered by Retina (Legacy)

  • Scanning, network discovery.
  • Does a good job at scanning without taking up network resources.
  • Does not consume a lot of bandwidth.

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

BeyondTrust Network Security Scanner, powered by Retina (Legacy)

  • I do not have any obvious cons to report at this time.

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

BeyondTrust Network Security Scanner, powered by Retina (Legacy)

I've evaluated Nessus and multiple other products. I'd say Retina is right there with Nessus. At a certain point, it's not about if the product "finds" more vulnerabilities, it's about how easy it is for the end user. All scanners right now find about the same amount of vulnerabilities, but some are harder for users to use. Retina has a pretty well-designed user interface.

Burp Suite

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.

Return on Investment

BeyondTrust Network Security Scanner, powered by Retina (Legacy)

  • The product is extremely easy to deploy, extremely positive.
  • If you take full advantage of this product as I did, you will maximize your ROI quickly as we did.
  • We were able to visualize our vulnerabilities efficiently and effectively and maintain scheduled scans that allowed us to maintain a continuous improvement atmosphere while securing our investments.
  • The ability provide reporting allows our IT department to prioritize issues and remediate as required without chasing down low risk issues over high risk issues that need immediate attention.

Burp Suite

  • Limited licenses for every application. It is not cheap
  • Community edition lacking some of the good features
  • Certification and proper training needed
