What do cyber security professionals think of burp suite?

A swiss army knife. I’m not even approaching the web/API security assessment until I have a Burp setup enabling me to inspect the proxied traffic in a lovely presented graphical interface :)

But on a more serious note, whether it’s OWASP ZAP, Charles proxy, fiddler, MITM proxy, everything will do, including a simple telnet/OpenSSL client to connect to the web resources. But life’s meant to be made more convenient, not harder - so a vast majority of us love our customized setup of Burp with all the plugins, configurations, key shortcuts, and whatnot.

Highly recommended, great APIs, great community around the tool, and fantastic company (Portswigger) who really do care about the experience their product is providing to the end-user.
