If you are concerned about security, avoid the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) and switch to SFTP.

Rad Inks has announced version 2.0 of the Rad SFTP applet with several feature enhancement. The Rad SFTP applet is a replacement for desktop FTP and Secure FTP clients. When it is installed on an intranet, all the employees in an organization can make use of that single installation manage files on remote servers.

The Rad Inks Secure FTP client makes use of the SSH FTP protocol, which despite the similarity in name with the File Transfer Protocol is a much more secure system. With FTP all the data and commands are transferred between the client and the server in plain text. Thus with FTP user names and passwords are transmitted without encryption. Security conscious webmasters and organizations are moving away from FTP and embracing the more secure SFTP where all the commands and data are transferred with encryption.

Because the Rad SFTP applet runs with in the web browser, an end user of the system does not need to install any software on his own computer. Because the applet is light weight it starts up almost instantly and can rival the start up speed of a desktop client. It's low in resource consumption and has all the features commonly found on desktop SFTP and FTP clients. Because only one single license of the product would be needed by most organizations, it costs much less when compared to desktop clients.

Rad Inks first released the Rad SFTP applet in 2003 and at the time the product was featured on the official Java website and received high ratings from many software reviewers. Since then Rad Inks has made a series of other groundbreaking products and many of them are being used on numerous Fortune 500 companies.
