It's not the port that is secure/insecure -- it's the app.

'secure' normally means that the communication channel is encrypted.  Web browsers use SSL/TLS in 'https' on port 443 but other ports can be used.  SSH is a different encryption method most commonly used on port 22.  As @_jesper_ said, the applications on both ends have to support the methods for them to work.
