In today’s advancement, Information Technology infrastructure continues to grow with the evolution of daily technology. The invention of the Internet has increased the use of computer and the mobile device. Nowadays, many people in the world use these devices, and as a result, a large amount of data stored device and each device in the Internet were required to be connected to each other because of sharing information. This innovation then brought about Cloud computing which is an Internet-based computing where shared resources, software and information are provided to computers and devices on-demand. It provides people the way to share distributed resources and services that belong to different organization. Since cloud computing uses distributed resources in open environment, thus it is important to provide the security and trust to share the data for developing cloud computing applications. This paper shows Successful implementation of cloud computing in an enterprise which requires proper planning and understanding of emerging risks, threats and possible countermeasures. This paper also shows how we secure the cloud security, privacy and reliability when a third party is processing sensitive data. In this paper, we have discussed security risks and concerns in cloud computing and enlightened steps that an enterprise can take to reduce security risks and protect their resources. This paper also covers the advantages and disadvantages of cloud computing. Finally, this paper identifies security threats focused on cloud computing which is an essential part of the companies that want to use cloud computing services, and some solutions about security threats for enterprise and service provider for the cloud computing deployment to provide the security of information.
