Investigation on Security Challenges over a Cloud Computing

Authors(2) :-Paladi Bhavani , Cholleti Jyothi

Cloud computing is a better option for the organizations to take as their best option without any initial investment and day by day frequent and heavy use of cloud computing is increasing but despite all the benefits a cloud offers to an organization there are certain doubts and threats regarding the security issues associated with a cloud computing platform. The security issues mostly involve the external control over organizational structure and management and personal and private data of the organization can be compromised. Personal and private data in this computing environment has a very high risk of breach of confidentiality, integrity and data availability. Progression of cloud computing is mainly vulnerable due to these security concerns and challenges. This detailed study discusses about some of the challenges associated with cloud computing services and security issues related to this platform.
