The McAfee Secure certification is provided to a site after having passed rigorous daily network security audits. The certification process is completed in six steps. The first three steps consist of Dynamic Port Scanning, Port-level Network Services Vulnerability Testing and Web Application Vulnerability Testing. The fourth and fifth step consist of the updates that are sent upon detection of security problems and the restoration management of these problems. The result is to have a dynamic secure website.
