Why does the Cloud need security?

Cloud services provide a computing environment and features through a network.

But the technical definition cloud service is unclear. Thus, the characteristics of a cloud service define the term. The characteristics of cloud service are as follows:

  • Devices should be connected through a broadband network
  • Service should be provided based on user demand
  • The location where the computing resources are accumulated should not be limited
  • The resources should be scalable according to usage
  • Usage should be always quantitatively measurable
