Is it possible to deploy cf application just the frontend as an desktop application or program, but the backend connection is still to the server housting the database? This is used by internal selected staff(~30) only. They will just doing the search and create reports or edit the information. The entry to the form is through the intranet site. The reason we are doing this for data security purpose as IIS is not secure. Hope I am clear with my intention.

how is IIS not secure?  If it is configured properly it can be.  Millions (i'm guessing) of IIS sites run securely every day.

That said, there is a product that allows you to deploy a CF app called cfeverywhere.  I've not used it, but here's a link:

From a maintenance standpoint, you're much better off running a web app that is deployed once, vs. a client install for every machine.
