Understanding Security in Cloud Storage
Many businesses that could already be benefiting from cloud storage are holding back due to security concerns. The cloud offers the opportunity to significantly reduce cost while providing reliable, on-demand storage.

Our aim in this paper is to identify the major risks and to explore the security models that can be used to mitigate them.
