Agentless security for your infrastructure and applications - to build faster, more securely and in a fraction of the operational cost of other solutions
Qualys and Burp Suite are two popular application scanners used by security professionals to identify vulnerabilities in web applications. While both tools share some similarities, they also have distinct differences that set them apart. In this blog post, we will compare Burp Suite and Invicti to help you choose the tool that best fits your needs.
Qualys is a cloud-based security and compliance platform that offers a variety of tools for web application security, compliance management, and vulnerability management. The ability to scan networks for security risks and vulnerabilities is one of Qualys' key features.
While some reviews are positive, some Qualys customers say that getting support is painful, and not any meaningful updates to the platforms we use (VMDR, PCI, WAS, FIM) aside from them breaking out pre-existing modules into new stand-alone services that they then add as new SKUs ( and want to charge extra $$$). For example, instead of improving the existing, native asset management/inventory management module that is included with VMDR, they build a new Cyber Security Asset Management (CSAM) platform, designate the old one as a "legacy" module, and now charge extra for the new one.
Burp Suite is a popular and widely-used web application scanner that is trusted by security professionals around the world.
While some reviews are positive, some Burpsuite customers say that the document doesn't tell you how to test a variety of vulnerabilities which is a very difficult thing if someone is very new to this tool.
Choosing between Qualys and Burpsuite depends on the specific needs of your organization.
If your organization requires a comprehensive and automated approach to vulnerability management, compliance monitoring, and web application scanning, then Qualys may be the better choice. Its cloud-based platform allows for scalable scanning and reporting across multiple web applications, making it an excellent choice for large organizations with multiple applications and websites to secure.
If your organization requires more hands-on testing and customization options, then Burpsuite may be the better choice. Its desktop application allows for detailed analysis and manual testing of web application security, making it a popular choice among security professionals who require more granular control over their testing.
Ultimately, both Qualys and Burpsuite are powerful tools that can help organizations secure their web applications against potential threats. The choice between the two depends on the specific needs and resources of your organization. It's best to evaluate both tools and consider factors such as cost, ease of use, and functionality to determine which one is the best fit for your organization's needs.
