Nowadays multiple advantages of cloud computing attract a lot of customers. Usage of cloud technology is quite profitable for enterprises and considerably facilitates their work, that’s why cloud computing solution is widely implemented by many organizations. Nevertheless cloud and security issue still causes a lot of concerns among users and impedes cloud adoption.

It worth mentioning that to protect on-premises data and data stored on the cloud, the typical security methods are used. Moving data to an external storage does not inevitably pose new risks. Moreover storing information on the cloud can be even more secure and cost effective in case of professional support.

However while using cloud computing it is necessary to protect not only the data that is already stored on the cloud, but also data in motion. These data include not only information transmitted between the local server and the cloud, but also usernames and passwords that are considered to be the most sensitive pieces of this kind of data. While in transition information is more likely to be accessed by the third party. Encryption is the best way of this risk elimination.

Among of the threats to cloud computing data security are phishing, inappropriate access to data by cloud service provider personnel, and the origin of data itself. They are not unique to the cloud, but should be taken into consideration while making up cloud security strategy.
