Overall Satisfaction with FileZilla

FileZilla is used by certain individuals who have a need to securely upload / download files via SFTP to authorized third party sites / vendors. The problem it solves for is the need to securely transfer files that contain personally identifiable information and other private data, versus using something like email or web form uploads.
  • Very easy to use
  • Secure
  • Great logging
  • Wish I could upgrade without the need for admin rights
  • Sometimes times out too quickly
  • Wish I could reveal the passwords I have saved
  • SFTP
  • Ease of use
  • Free
  • I dont have hard numbers, but we would be very unlikely to switch to another FTP client.
I have used products like CuteFTP and found them clunky and not as easy to use.

Would you buy FileZilla again?


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.
