FileZilla

I use FileZilla to securely upload files that are not permitted to be sent via insecure methods like email or web forms. FileZilla is great to test the ability to "reach" the remote SFTP server and to verify my files arrived. Once I have tested that, then our internal IT group automates the uploads to these third parties, however I can always manually log into FIleZilla to verify the uploads.

Ipswitch MOVEit is perfect for larger companies looking for a secure easy to use file transfer solution. Ipswitch MOVEit provides many features that allow users to connect in many ways and share files. If you are looking for an easy way to bypass the file restrictions when sending or receiving emails then Ipswitch MOVEit is a great product for you and your company.

Pros

FileZilla

  • Strips away unwanted underlying code from products that produce documents using any Microsoft product that is not needed in our products.
  • The nice part is that it strips away hidden code such as ctrl and another digit that is not necessary or can be replaced with the correct coding to produce standard processes such as graphics using ANSI or another protocol as well as line feeds and header masks.
  • We are in the process of determining if their pro product will function in the way we want it to across networks rather than going to each workstation to make changes decreasing our productivity.
  • We are also evaluating whether their technical support is responsive.

Cons

FileZilla

  • Server version for Linux: The FileZilla Server version is only available for Windows and not available for the Linux Operating System. As we have a huge Linux fan base and most of the servers being deployed on Linux across the world, there is a need for the server version of this software to be available on Linux.
  • Proper tutorials for all the available features: I sometimes feel that this tool offers so many advanced features, but most of them remain hidden behind some nested options. This happens because of a lack of official tutorials of this tool.

  • Drag and dropping of files to attached to packages.
  • I believe there is room for improvement when it comes to setting up folder and group security.
  • A better mobile app is absolutely needed. The current app lacks in features.

FileZilla is really easy to understand and makes it easy to log into servers to upload files. Moving files around is a breeze (even if it's a little tedious to wait for large quantities to move one by one) and editing html and css files directly is a feature it would be difficult for us to live without

I've never contacted FileZilla support directly, but they are so popular that there are countless tutorials online showing how to connect to any number of web servers, how to configure SSH/SFTP and so on. I feel that because of the popularity of FileZilla, the support from the general user community is sufficient.

Alternatives Considered

FileZilla

We've used mostly either command-line FTP programs built-in to the operating systems, or we've used web-based file transfer sites. Some of these web-based sites might require Java or other specific browser addons, which sometimes are not safe and/or can be hacked, so it's much safer and more convenient to use FileZilla instead for all file transfer purposes.

We started using Box a while ago and we are thinking of exchanging MOVEit with Box when it comes to customer and suppliers file transfers. However, there is some reticence in doing that right now, our IT feels more comfortable form the security point of view with MOVEit. Eventually, we will move everything to Box since it is clearly the next level in terms of files storage, transfers, features, etc.

Return on Investment

FileZilla

  • The positive impact is easy file management. Since we have multiple clients some of them have different host providers which offer their own FTP interface. Using FileZilla allows us to use one interface to interact with all of our client files.
  • The return on investment is quick turnaround for updating files.

  • Ipswitch MOVEit has been a huge benefit to our user base to allow them to send and receive large files without using email.
  • Ipswitch MOVEit is used on a daily basis to collaborate with our customers when sharing files.
  • Ipswitch MOVEit is a great product that can be used as a cloud like file storage tool.
