The evolution of modern computing systems has lead to the emergence of Cloud computing. Cloud computing facilitates on-demand establishment of dynamic, large scale, flexible, and highly scalable computing infrastructures. However, as with any other emerging technology, security underpins widespread adoption of Cloud computing. This paper presents the state-of-the-art about Cloud computing along with its different deployment models. The authors also describe various security challenges that can affect an organization’s decision to adopt Cloud computing. Finally, the authors list recommendations to mitigate with these challenges. Such review of state-of-the-art about Cloud computing security can serve as a useful barometer for an organization to make an informed decision about Cloud computing adoption.
