Introduce optional password protection for Office formats
It will be great if the Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) reports generated by Telerik Reporting can be password protected.

Hi, 

This feature is already in our plans.
Meanwhile, as a workaround you can use the suggested approach from Password protect Open XML Wordprocessing Document Stack Overflow thread.
If you use the Telerik Reporting REST Service, you need to override the ReportsControllerBase.OnGetDocument Method where args contains the bytes of the documents - check GetDocumentEventArgs Class. Basically, the document may be edited (e.g. password protected) and reassigned to the args.
If you use a viewer with an embedded engine (e.g. desktop viewer), you may handle the ReportViewerBase.ExportEnd Event and do the same.

Regards,
Neli
