Today, in the world of communication, connected systems is growing at a rapid pace. To accommodate this growth the need for computational power and storage is also increasing at a similar rate. Companies are investing a large amount of resources in buying, maintaining and ensuring availability of the system to their customers. To mitigate these issues, cloud computing is playing a major role. The underlying concept of cloud computing dates back to the '50s but the term entering into widespread usage can be traced when Amazon.com announced the elastic compute cloud. In this paper, the authors will discuss about cloud security approaches. They have used the term \"Cloud-drain\" to define data leakage in case of security compromise.
