Cloud computing is the term given to the use of several server computers via a digital network as if they were one computer. The 'Cloud' itself is a virtualization of various resources such as networks, servers, applications, data storage and services - which the end user has on-demand access to. Cloud computing services are divided into three types, according to the abstraction level of the capability provided and the service model of providers, namely: Infrastructure as a service (IaaS), Platform as a service (PaaS) and Software as a service (SaaS). This paper proposes a novel cloud computing paradigm, Data Protection as a Service (DPaaS).
