We use PGP or the free open source version in conjunction w/
FTP. Some customers are still sticklers saying that the user id and
password is not encrypted on logon, but most are pretty reasonable since
unauthorized access to the site would only allow you get to a very strongly
encrypted file. The other option we've seen customers ask for is SSH. It
it a very reasonably priced server and many people already have
the client for it. It provides encryption end to end. Of course, we still
prefer pgp encrypted files since files on servers are much more likely to be
compromised than files in transit.
