Along those lines, action items for the team include:
Encryption is a method of transporting data in ciphered code which cannot be viewed without matching it with a secret key. According to data by Symantec, nearly 13.4 percent of consumer devices and 10.5 percent of enterprise devices do not have encryption enabled, which can easily expose sensitive data as plain text.

Visual Studio has always had Professional and Enterprise editions, and since Visual Studio 2005 free editions as well, these latter originally being free Express versions specific to a language, but now wrapped up as a Community edition. The balance between what is available free and what is not has shifted, with more now being offered for nothing. It pays Microsoft to encourage developers to support its platform, so there is a trade-off between giving away the tools and trying to make them viable products in their own right. That said, the free Community edition is only licensed for commercial use for individuals or "non-enterprise" organisations, defined as those with more than 250 PCs or over $1m in revenue. 2b1af7f3a8
