Cloud computing is a technology paradigm that is offering useful services to consumers. Cloud service providers utilize huge computing resources spread over geographical distances to provide services to customers. The computing resources deployed over the Internet comprises hardware and software used in virtualization, storage and compute purposes. This has obvious security implications as data is transmitted and stored in different locations over the Internet. Such data is not within the control of the owner. Beyond data, there are other security issues in cloud computing relating to virtualization and applications. Security has severe impact on the decision as to whether an organisation will adopt the cloud or not. Hence, the discussion on security is dynamic and solutions are evolving daily. This paper examines present trends in the area of cloud security and provides a guide for future research. In the present work, the objective is to answer the following question: what is the current trend and development in cloud security? Papers published in journals, conferences, white papers and those published in reputable magazines were analysed. The expected result at the end of this review is the identification of trends in cloud security. This will be of benefit to prospective cloud users and even cloud providers.
