ASP.Net is as secure as any programming platform. In fact, .Net is the preferred platform for enterprise solutions. Its future will remain secure as long as people evolve with the programming platform as it provides a great amount of maintainability and support. ASP.Net has its own structure, algorithm, architecture and OOPS concepts. People need to get expertise in the area and get fluent with it.
Last year in February 2015, Microsoft has announced a completely revamped version of ASP.Net. As it is an open source web framework, it makes it easier for developers to create latest modern web applications at more reduced cost. Therefore, there are three different platforms where a developer can now run ASP.Net applications i.e. Linux, Windows and Mac. The version 5 of the popular web framework also comes with several new features that will help programmers to build perceptive dynamic pages rapidly.

New Features to Effectuate Modern Web Application Development
Option to use 3 Runtime Engines
In the new framework programmers have options to choose from three distinct runtime engines, i.e. Core CLR, Full.Net CLR and Cross-Platform CLR. As a default run time engine, Full.Net CLR can be used; whereas Core CLS is designed as modular and cloud optimized runtime. On the other hand, Cross-platform CLR will enable them to create ASP.Net applications for Mac OS X and Linux, in addition to Window.
A Unified Core Framework
The latest version of web framework called MVC 6 is a unified core framework. To avail the features of web pages, MVC and Web API, they can use MVC 6. The unified framework allows them to handle requests using only one type of controller for ASP.Net pages, ASP.Net Web API applications and ASP.Net MVC. So there is no more requirement of writing codes separately for each technology.
The new version allows programmers to create Views using Tag Helpers instead of conventional MVC helpers. The new option enables them to use HTML helpers in programmer views. Programmers views can be made to appear more natural and readable with the use of Tag Helpers.
Cloud Ready Configuration
The revamped framework further makes it easier for programmer to publish or deploy projects in the cloud without worrying about different configuration. It comes with a cloud ready configuration that simplifies the process of migrating or deploying projects in the cloud.
Programmer have option to take advantage of the new features and functionality of Visual Studio 2015. The dynamic compilation feature of Visual Studio 2015 will streamline programmer development experience. It will enable them to check the changes made by programmer to the code without recompiling the app.
Microsoft has launched the .Net foundation. As an independent organization, .Net foundation will act as a forum for both commercial developers and community. So programmer can take advantage of the forum to avail the code snippets uploaded by other developers, and answer programmer question. The assistance will make it easier for programmer to quickly write complex web applications in ASP.Net. The latest features include the use of three run time engines: Core CLR, Full.Net CLR and Cross-Platform CLR, Unified Core Framework, Tag Helpers, Cloud Ready Configuration and Dynamic Compilation.
