Burp is voted #1 web scanner

Every couple of years, SecTools.org carries out a survey of the most popular security tools, as voted for by thousands of users. The latest results are out and Burp has done pretty well:

Needless to say, I'm pretty happy with this result, especially given the survey's overall focus on network security tools.

Burp has come a long way since it started off as a hobby project which soaked up my spare time. Burp wouldn't be where it is today without the huge support I get from users - with useful feature requests, bug reports, and telling other people about the software. So I owe a massive thank you to everyone who uses Burp and has helped over the years.

Despite being number one, I will of course be trying harder. I'm working on a lot of cool new features for Burp, which will be released over the coming year. Please do keep the feature requests coming!

Congratulations! No guy can live without it. When we pentest a web app, the first tool we launch is Burp. We love Burp. Thanks for implementing our past requests and suggestions. We'll continue to support Burp.
