It’s now been a month since we launched the new Cloud-based Burp Suite Enterprise Edition, and we’re taking a look at the benefits our users have seen so far. 

Burp Suite Enterprise Edition in the Cloud is designed to help AppSec teams scale their security testing with automated DAST scanning, without the burden of setting up and maintaining their infrastructure.

What benefits are AppSec teams seeing?

The new Cloud version enables Burp Suite Enterprise Edition users to start with DAST scanning faster - it’s now, on average, 8x quicker to get started with your first scan compared to a self-hosted installation.

As a result, AppSec teams can scale their security testing more quickly to keep up with their organization's growth.

AppSec teams worldwide are now using the new cloud-based version, with teams in Asia, Europe, and North America using Burp Suite Enterprise Edition to get set up and start scanning in minutes.

Although DAST scanning is complicated and sometimes requires trial and error to get the perfect configuration, our cloud users encounter nearly three times fewer failed scans than those on self-hosted installations. This is because the cloud version has a faster feedback loop, and our technical support team has greater access to debugging information to help assist with any issues you might be experiencing.

How this Swiss tech organization uses Burp Suite Enterprise Edition in the Cloud to focus on testing external applications…

This Switzerland-based organization’s primary goal is to build a robust testing program that closely emulates an external attacker to give them confidence in their security measures. Their AppSec team sought to leverage Burp Suite Enterprise Edition to fill this gap in their security architecture.

Since using Burp Suite Enterprise Edition in the Cloud, this organization has been able to scale their testing and automate the scanning of their 25+ applications, and have integrated this new testing process seamlessly with their existing security protocols. They were able to start scanning in less than 24 hours, without being hindered by any installation or configuration delays.

This organization plans to fully integrate Burp Suite Enterprise Edition into its security operations to automate and streamline vulnerability scanning processes, ensuring timely identification and remediation of security issues. This integration is seen as crucial for maintaining the security integrity of their applications and supporting their growth in the technology industry.
