If a colleague was looking to tighten down their network I can easily recommend Snort to them. It gives you some more peace of mind knowing that its always scanning traffic for malicious looking code. Even things your major firewalls and security hardware might miss, Snort has picked up. Its an easy recommendation for me.

PortSwigger Web Security

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.

PortSwigger Web Security

  • 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.

  • Reporting area is a weak area that we have identified with Burp.
  • DevsecOps integration is something I am really curious about...
  • The user interface can be considered to make more improvements.

      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

      Cisco

      For our organization, the Cisco defense in depth concept works the best. While Cisco can be made to work with other vendors, we have found the best in depth protection by integrating Cisco products for maximum visibility. We had a Barracuda Web Filter, but it was difficult to maintain when you had limited scope on what you could block, so we created a whitelist only setup which required a lot of additional manpower. This wouldn't have covered new threats with DNS spoofing and the like. Sourcefire also integrated with our anti-malware platform (Cisco AMP) for even better visibility on what may be happening on the end users workstation. We are planning on adding in Cisco ISE to complete the approach and possibly stealthwatch to cover our bases in the future. The Palo Alto gear was interesting, but it was priced far out of our range.

      Each tool is specific and are good for what they do. While Burp Suite can perform some level of the same functions, somehow security consultants prefer these tools as additional to the Burp Suite. Maybe due to open source and easy setup when compared to Burp Suite. But Burp Suite allows for one tool for many templates for each project.

      Return on Investment

      Cisco

      • Being open source, ROI on free is hard to beat for something that works.
      • I believe it greatly enhances the security of my network.

      • 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.
