Customer case study

California Polytechnic State University

Burp Suite Enterprise Edition in the education sector.


California Polytechnic State University (or Cal Poly) was founded in 1901. Serving over 21,000 students annually, and with six colleges, it features in Forbes' list of the Top 25 Schools in the West.

  • Dashboard and scan summary reports for full visibility of their entire web portfolio at a glance.

  • Customizable scan configurations - which allow flexibility in security testing.
