Hi all,
I am new in programming and I just joined a company that offers secure file transfer software components. So I firstly want to gather some selective information on why should I use Secure FTP instead of FTP? And why is SFTP better than FTP?
Thanks in advance!

SFTP is more secure as transmitted data is encrypted.
SFTP is not to be confused with FTPs (FTP over SSH). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSH_file_transfer_protocol

Hi, first of all congratulation for job. Despite the similarity in name the two protocols are completely different. In FTP all data is passed back and forth between the client and server without the use of encryption. This makes it possible for an eavesdropper to listen in and retrieve your confidential information including login details. With SFTP all the data is encrypted before it is sentient across the network. Hope you will satisfy with my opinions. I wish you for your great career.
All the best!

SFTP only transmits data over 1 port (22), whereas ftp may use several random ports, which makes it very difficult to control through a firewall.
