Abstract

Abstract- Small and Medium scale Enterprises (SMEs) are key economic growth drivers in the African sub region. Over the years, the information technology (IT) needs of these SMEs have resulted in increased requirements for enterprise IT solutions that are more efficient and have high availability and scalable over time. Cloud computing presents such solutions that can be of immense benefits to SMEs. Three cloud service providers and fifty SMEs were used for data collection. The outcome of the research indicates that SMEs adopting cloud computing services will see improved service delivery and increased efficiency and productivity. The main concern of users in the cloud environment is data security and privacy. Security and privacy within and outside the cloud is shared responsibility of service providers and users. These concerns could be mitigated by ensuring that effective security controls are put in place by both parties. This research allows for informed decision to be made about the security risks and benefits of using cloud computing. Keywords: Cloud Computing, SMEs, Security Benefit.
