I rarely see that McAfee Secure stuff anymore. I just did a quick check on their site and much of the information they are relying on for sales is dated. In fact, two of the Case Studies I checked no longer display the McAfee Seal, what gives?
$1,700 to $11,000 per year?! Wait until the NYT gets wind of this! ;)
Oh, that 12% increase is based on July 2008 to January 2009 data. Much has changed online since then. Consumer confidence is at a completely different level.
Also, much of the promotional materials, Case Studies, etc, are dated.
I can do plenty of things with CSS and other methods to give a secure area the feel that is needed for consumer confidence. I like to serve an alternate stylesheet for secure pages too. Change some things to green, serve a different favicon, all sorts of neat little stuff that makes an immediate first impression when visiting the page. You don't need no stinkin' security seal - make your own! :)
