In recent years, cloud computing has gained importance for provision of services and storage of data in the Internet. However the significant challenges in securing the cloud environment from different types of attacks has upsurge. The Existing system focused only on the DOS attack using the pro_validation Method based on the SLA policies. The limitation with this is lagging of users privacy with such SLA Policies. Hence, the main contribution of the proposed work is to thwart the external attacks which can exploit technical and operational vulnerabilities to attack a cloud service provider or tenants in order to gain access over the confidential data. In this proposed system different insider and external attack behaviors are analysed and discussed how these attacks are detected & counteracted by the proposed  AFC Scanner method which acts as a primary scanning system for files resides in the cloud based on the signature sets and the major entropy based attack detection & prevention  technique for mitigating the external attacks like SYN Flood(DDOS), which are the major attacks in the network transmission. Index Terms—Cloud security, AFC Scanner, malicious insider, External Attack, SYN Flood (DDOS) Attack.
