Abstract

Cloud Computing is an excellent technology for Micro Medium and Small Enterprises, which operate under budget shortage for setting up their own Information Technology infrastructure that requires capital investment on resources such as computers, storage and networking devices.  Now-a-days, major Cloud Providers like Google and Amazon provide cloud services to its customers for managing their email, contact list, calendar, documents, and their own websites.  MSME can take advantage of the cloud-based solutions offered by various Cloud Service Providers for equipping their own employees in doing their day to day activities more effectively and on the cloud.  Though cloud computing promotes less expensive and collaborative work environment among a group of employees, it involves risks in keeping the resources such as computing and data secured.  Different mechanisms are available for securing the data on the cloud among which encryption of data using cryptographic algorithm is the widely used one.  Among various encryption symmetric algorithms, Advanced Encryption Standard is the more secured symmetric encryption algorithm for implementing data privacy on the cloud.  In this paper, the authors have discussed some of the issues involved in adopting the cloud in an organization and proposed solutions that will benefit an organization while uploading and managing data in files and databases on the cloud.
