Best secure ftp solution

What would be the best secure ftp solution for a scenario where...
1. End user has little or no intervention(installation of client, ect)
2. Seamless
3. Browser Based
4. Can be customized to email Url's to the end user.
5. Scripting/Automated capabilities.( Ability for another application to automate the process of creating reports in Word, PDF, Excel format and then ftp/send to a "secure container" and then be accessed by an end user via emailing of a link/url.

My thoughts so far are

SSL over ftp
ssh over ftp
secure ftp
WebDav

thanks for any feedback.

VSFTP or SFTP built into Linux are pretty much de-facto when it comes to secure FTP?

Secure web delivery is a good option. I agree with tim on the sftp vsftp. Sftp i have seen is more widely used with our clients.

We want to host it ourselves we already have about 45 servers, and have a pretty decent sized IT department. I'm looking into Vshell for Linux right now.

Also I am looking into some Windows solutions, mainly because after I deploy the server someone else will administer it.
