Syhunt as Alternative to Burp

This document compares key functionality and scan capabilities of two industry-leading products: the Syhunt Hybrid suite and Burp Suite. The comparison is of particular interest for those undecided between the two products and for those seeking for an alternative to Burp.


Both Syhunt and PortSwigger are pioneer industry-leading web application security competing companies. The development of both products began almost at the same year (2003). In 2008, Syhunt went beyond the DAST market and added its first SAST capabilities (Syhunt Code), which has been expanding heavily since then, and in 2019, added MAST capabilities (Syhunt Mobile). Burp in comparison added OAST capabilities (known as Burp Collaborator) in 2015 and IAST capabilities in 2016 (Burp Infiltrator). Syhunt's DAST and OAST capabilities (Syhunt Signal), unveiled in 2020, integrate with Syhunt's SAST capabilities to provide hybrid-augmented security analysis.


The table below offers a closer look at the different testing methodologies and features of Syhunt Hybrid and Burp and why Syhunt can best suit the application security needs of an organization.
