The daily rapid malware growth and spread has enforced the security community of antivirus companies to introduce cloud computing technology to their existing protection methods so as to be able to deal with efficiently the active malware threats. A new hybrid security model, based on cloud computing, should be developed to offer optimized protection to the connected users. In this research, we describe our proposed cloud infrastructure and analyze it with mathematical models to export significant diagrams about various metrics. Our cloud model architecture consists of four layers: the master cloud server, the slave servers, the virtual subservers and the users connected to the cloud. Experimental results demonstrate that our proposed layered cloud architecture verifies the trust of its implementation and establishment, due to the fact that it makes the current architecture more lightweight, efficient and secure for e-health data transmission.
