High security is a great factor behind the widespread acceptance of ColdFusion. Today, with huge developments in the technology field, hackers are more armed with sophisticated techniques and tools, making it necessary for developers to make the applications extra secure. Adobe has equipped ColdFusion with high-level security features to create secure applications.

3. Easy learning
Comparing to other programming languages, ColdFusion is easier to learn and implement. The simple and user-friendly interface is a lot helpful to the developer side tasks. Managing databases are easier using single interface thereby helping in the maintenance of stable data within a secure environment.

4. Code Quality
ColdFusion helps developers to develop websites without coding any additional codes. The developers can provide the code in a neat and coherent form. So it is faster and easier for developers to provide aid and update the ColdFusion code base in a later period. On the other hand, developers have to make use of the features given by different frameworks to write a Python code readable and maintainable.

5. Mobile App Development

Although used widely for server-side programming, Ruby on Rails cannot be used directly for mobile app development. It cannot be utilized by programmers in a direct way for developing apps for common mobile platforms such as iOS and Android. But the newer version of ColdFusion is equipped to facilitate the creation of both web and mobile applications. The programmers can use the features provided by ColdFusion 11 and higher versions to write iOS and Android apps in CFML.
