Thank you for your interest in this whitepaper "JReport Security".
Security cannot be overlooked when comparing features of BI tools. It is smart to ensure that the BI tool that you choose has all of the options you need to not only manage the security of the report data, but also to manage the resources, file permissions and disk resources. When calculating the total costs over time, make certain the calculations include the subscription costs of purchasing the commercial versions from open source vendors, and the additional resource costs needed for tools which do not include multi-level bursting and group level security. JReport is the only product which provides all of these features out of the box without any additional costs: they are all included in the base product.
