I have seen both of them, I am a little worried about how secure an open source sftp server can be.

And core FTP is not the best server around, anyone else with suggestions?

First of all, FTP is not the same protocol as SFTP.

If you want to use the FTP protocol, but save, meaning with encryption, you will have to add an SSL cert to the server. You could use a self signed, traffic will be encryptet, but you would get prompted about cert not valid. It would normally be called FTPES:

SFTP is not normal FTP. It uses the SSH protocoll (port 22) to transfer files, like SCP (secure copy).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sftp

Back to the question.

I've successfully used these FTP Servers with SSL certs for encrypted FTP traffic:

FileZilla Server - filezilla-project.org - Windows
vsftpd - linux/unix software
IIS7.5 on Windows 2008 (part of IIS7, but a manual download and install - see http://iis.net)
