The system requirements for Burp Suite Enterprise Edition depend on several factors:

  • The number of concurrent scans you want to run.
  • The applications you want to scan.
  • The number of issues expected.
  • The number of active Burp Suite Enterprise Edition users in your installation.

The system requirements that we recommend provide satisfactory performance for most use cases. However, you may need to use infrastructure with a higher specification to meet your particular needs.

For the best performance, we recommend you distribute scans across multiple scanning machines. If you need help with the system requirements, please email our support team.

The system requirements are specific to the type of deployment you choose. To learn more about the types of deployment available, see Deployment options.

For a production deployment, we recommend that you configure an external database.

Concurrent scans

When you determine your system requirements, you need to consider the number of concurrent scans that you plan to run. In Burp Suite Enterprise Edition, concurrent scans are the number of scans that you want to run at the same time. The links above explain how concurrent scans change your system requirements.
