Key security initiatives
At The Ramco Cements, Manikandan Kannan was responsible for implementing a number of features to strengthen cloud applications. These included disablement of webpage printing. Documents can be read only within the application and cannot be downloaded; documents cannot be saved and the source code cannot be seen or copied.

The new security protocol ensured that authorized persons can view highly confidential documents only within the application without being able to copy, paste, download, or print. Unauthorized access was prevented, even if the password table was hacked. However, while stringent security measures were applied, the company made sure to not cause hardships to the authorized users.
