A cloud security system and method designed to protect users' data in case of accidental leaks in a cloud computing environment. Secured hashing of the names of folders stored on the cloud data storage are generated and persisted using multiple iterations of cryptographic hash functions along with a concatenated random number for each of the folder names, thereby providing protection against vulnerability of the folder names. The proposed system is a dual-layer framework consisting of a control layer and a data layer. The control layer is responsible for cryptographic hashing and persistence of the folder name, hashed name, salt, and iterations in a database. The control layer communicates with the data layer and provides the hashed folder names to persist the user data cloud storage.
