Due to speedy development in internet facilities, detecting intrusions in a real-time cloud environment is challenging via traditional methods. In this case, advanced machine or deep learning methods can be efficiently used in anomaly or intrusion detection. Thus, the present study focuses on designing and developing the intrusion detection scheme using an ensemble learning-based random forest method and deep convolutional neural networks in a near real-time cloud atmosphere. The proposed models were tested on CSE-CICIDS2018 datasets in Python (Anaconda 3) environment. The proposed models achieved 97.73 and 99.91 per cent accuracy using random forest and deep convolutional neural networks, respectively. The developed models can be effectively utilised in real-time cloud datasets to detect intrusions.
