Product overview

Burp Suite Professional and Burp Suite Enterprise Edition share the same class-leading Burp Scanner at their core. They are separate products and do not follow an upgrade path - however, they're entirely complimentary for different phases of the security pipeline.

Burp Suite Enterprise Edition enables you to automate dynamic scanning across your web portfolio, and gain visibility of your security posture - while Burp Suite Professional enables security testers to carry out faster, more reliable testing for individual applications.

License model

All of our products use a self-service license model, meaning that all the resources you'll need to get the most out of our products and services are available online for free.

Those resources include:

Burp Suite Professional

  • Burp Suite Professional is licensed on a per user basis - with user meaning an individual person rather than a machine, system, concurrent user, or anything else - so you must be licensed for the number of individual people ever to use the software.
  • For more information, please read our Burp Suite Professional product EULA.

Burp Suite Enterprise Edition

  • A Burp Suite Enterprise Edition license is designed to be tailored to an organization's exact needs, so you can have as many concurrent scans as are required. We also have a selection of product bundles to suit organizations of varying sizes. See our Burp Suite Enterprise Edition pricing page for more details.
  • Unlike many automated web vulnerability scanners, Burp Suite Enterprise Edition enables you to scan an indefinite number of sites, at no extra cost. Instead, your subscription price is based on the number of scans you wish to run concurrently.
  • For more information, please read our Burp Suite Enterprise Edition product EULA.

Note

One concurrent scan can scan one application, at one time. If you need to scan five applications simultaneously as part of your routine security scanning, you will need five concurrent scans. However, unlike most automated web vulnerability scanners, Burp Suite Enterprise Edition concurrent scans can be assigned and reassigned across any websites, applications, or URLs.
