SSRS Security Manager Feature: Visualize Security

This is where SSRS Security Manager excels. You can see where there are differences in security.

Using report manager to look for security differences would mean going through each item and looking at the security of every item, how long would that take?  What are the chances of missing an item?

SSRS Security Differences
