Burp Suite Enterprise Connector Guide

How to set up and use the Burp Suite Enterprise connector in RiskSense.


The RiskSense platform provides an API-based connector that integrates with Burp Suite Enterprise Edition, enabling customers to bring in their DAST findings from Burp into RiskSense. This connector allows customers to gain visibility into their overall risk due to vulnerabilities in their web applications and enable a more straightforward, more efficient way to manage those vulnerabilities.
