Overall Satisfaction with PortSwigger Burp Suite

Working in application security, I use Burp Suite to proxy my internet traffic for inspection and manipulation to help test for security vulnerabilities. The other tool that comes to mind is OWASP ZAP, but overall Burp is generally considered to be the best tool out there for application security testers.
  • Fuzzing requests for vulnerabilities
  • Intercepting requests
  • Great extensions through the store that extend functionality
  • Personally I have more trouble than I should getting the scope set just how I need it to filter out junk traffic like Google and Firefox background noise
  • Very affordable for a security tool
  • All-in-one tool for web app testing
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.
