I love using SmartFTP for Windows and do so regularly since it's a tool that lets me easily move my files from my local PC over to any server on the web. The transfers are not only reliable but also sufficiently secure and efficient that I don't worry at all about what's going to happen to the data that those files are carrying.
I am always skeptical these days when I hear the word “FTP”. Working in the cybersecurity field over the last decade as allowed me to better understand how the transfer of information works and where vulnerabilities can be found. The fact that Smart FTP has sFTP protocol gives me comfort, but I do believe that regular FTP should be outlawed. The product is feature heavy which from a users perspective is very attractive and I’m sure provides a ton of functionality. I would just challenge the software provider to stress the security side equally.
