SFTP file upload/download on wordpress site

I'm going to be creating a client portal using WordPress.  I'd like for our clients to be able to download/upload files securely without an FTP client.  I saw this post, but its over 2 years old...

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Internet_Email/File_Sharing/FTP/Q_25097511.html

Java's security issues seem to render the above option outdated, or am I wrong???  What's the best way to set this up using SFTP?

There is no standard to upload file from SFTP without client, but you can use Java applet to remove the need of explicit installation for SFTP client.

There are also several upload plugins available for WordPress.  This is one:

Does that WordPress plugin transfer files "securely"?  I will be dealing with sensitive information and need an alternative to SFTP.  

Otherwise, I may have to go the developer route and investigate the java applet...

Most of the upload plugins use the HTTP Post to upload the file and then PHP processes it and makes it available for whatever purpose.  To secure the upload, simply add a secure certificate to the site and use https.
