Secure FTP is a client application that allows for a 256-bit encrypted secure connection to be made to a server that supports FTP over SSL (or FTPS).

The application can be run via its graphical user interface (GUI) or from the command-line interface (CLI), allowing for headless (scriptable) operation. This makes Secure FTP a great option for both novice and advanced users.

The client is fully RFC 2228 compliant and offers both types of SSL connection options: explicit and implicit, which means more server compatibility.

Secure FTP is free to use for noncommercial use. Those wishing to use the client for commercial more...

Funniest part is the drama at the beginning ending with a 128-bit punchline :-)

I am finally able to enjoy secure login to my ftp server.
I use PureFTPd Manager (a mac frontend to pureftpd) in combination with this client and I think I have a pretty easy to deploy FTP solution now.
The client is not as complete as Transmit (from a Mac user perspective) but as least it doesn't send clear text password, it works on multiple platforms: Mac, Linux, Windows, and you can always send RAW commands if needed.
I'm pretty confident we'll see more Mac related goodies in the next version (Rendezvous support would be nice).
Thanks for your work.
