This is just nonsense. I've worked for enterprise orgs that use Python
to do exactly that. It's been a long term trend to move away from
discrete desktop apps and towards intranet-bound web apps instead.
Python is ideal for this use, and none of the security issues you're
citing apply.

Pure, unmitigated FUD.
