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.

There are so many free and stable alternatives to this tool. Here are three, off the top of my head.

If you're serving files publically, it's easier on clients if you just set up a web site to serve files using HTTP over SSL/TLS. No need to ask clients to pay $30 for the privilege of doing what millions of others do for free every day.

If you insist on using FTP in this day and age, perhaps for authenticated downloads, the command line tool 'sftp' (which means 'secure ftp', by the way) is free, stable, widely used, and available from your Terminal. Just set up an anonymous ftp account on a server somewhere, and you can retrieve files that way.

If you insist on authenticated file transfers within the Finder, you can even go one better than either of the first two solutions, and install 'sshfs', which allows you to remotely view files in your Finder over an encrypted link. That's free as well, by the way.

Expensive, feature-poor, and an ugly interface - sign me up!

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.
