Cloud Computing is one of the most important advancements in technology since the invention of the Personal Computers. Cloud Computing refers to manipulating, configuring and accessing the applications via the Internet and provides various kinds of services to its users. One of the principal concerns of Cloud Computing is security “How secure is a cloud computing environment?” - Security is then one of the parameters that need to be tackled deeper before enterprises embrace this popular technology to a greater degree. With the cloud technology paradigm enterprise data are stored at a remote location and must be assured that is safe and be available at any time. Our effort is to report security feature results of our evaluation carried out on Public, Private, Community and Hybrid Cloud Computing; which includes differences between their services, architecture, deployment and development of services and the way to mitigate those security risks and issues
