Abstract: Demand and need of the cloud computing industry are increasing owing to its wide range of applications. Data security is one of the major concerns of the cloud, especially in private and hybrid clouds. In this paper, a recent survey on usage of the cloud computing technology in India is presented. Related security issues regarding the public, private and community clouds concerned are also depicted. The survey has been conducted in both online and offline mode. It comprises opinion from 108 respondents out of 153 requests. A majority of participants reveal that they use cloud technology in their daily life applications and approximately 73% are concerned about the security issues, especially private cloud storage and the biometric security. Mitigation measures for all variants of the cloud technology are also presented. A novel statistical survey report for 2016 is presented regarding security needs and improvements by considering various parameters.

Keywords: cloud computing; security; private cloud; real-time survey; security-attacks; biometric.
