Designed to replicate the actions and methodologies of a skilled manual tester, Burp Scanner can handle virtually any target. It's highly configurable, enabling you to tailor scans based on the specific needs of the application or API being tested. Burp Scanner integrates with other Burp tools, enabling you to streamline your penetration testing workflow.
