Basically I plan to new ftp server but it can be Hardware based ready FTP Server(like a new physical server which software installed on it if possible) or FTP server software to buy and install on windows 2008 server.

This FTP server must be AD integration and secureFTP functions.

For SFTP I ran FreeSSHD on Server 2008. It integrates with AD and did the job perfectly. It was a bit a faff to setup although I took the man approach and did not bother reading the instructions, through trail and error I managed to figure it out and get it working in about half a day, once it was up and running it was bullet proof and very reliable. One tip I can give you is do not run it as a service. You can download from www.freesshd.com

You can use FTP 7.5, a built-in windows 2008 solution to achieve this

Its supports FTPS (Secure FTP) and required clients such as FileZilla to access this FTPS server as it do not support internet explorer
There are free FTPS clients available on internet.

You can even build windows failover cluster if wanted to for FTPS server

The dead easiest secure FTP server I've installed was a commercial program named Robo-FTP Server.  It was worth it to buy on that project because we had a requirement to get supported software and we needed to launch a data import process immediately every time a file was uploaded and it had the ability to do that.  The AD integration wasn't that great but if you created an FTP account with the same name as an AD account it could use domain authentication to validate the login which was good since the users wouldn't need a new username+password but I didn't do more advanced AD stuff like group permissions, etc.
