By virtue of Internet, Mobile Cloud Computing provides powerful resourceful services to the mobile device users. In order to assure secure services in a mobile cloud environment, adoption of data security protocol is unavoidable for cloudlet based architecture. Maximum utilization of mobile devices is an issue due to its resource scarcity like display, battery power, etc. A cloudlet is a resourceful computer inter-connected to the internet. Nearby mobile devices can access the cloudlet with single hop to overcome its resource scarcity. This research, proposes a hybrid security algorithm, which provides secure data transfer in mobile cloud environment using cloudlet. This enables mobile users to utilize the cloud with minimized security risk. The efficiency of the algorithm was appraised with the response time and processing time.
