I am currently looking for the best industry standard application used for FTP on a windows server to another windows operating system machine off site.

We are currently using Filezilla and seeking a better solution, anything that would be feature rich with security or great for quick transfers, multiple streams and more importantly reliable.

I'm looking for all suggestions and tips for what you think the best industry standard FTP client is for valuable data transfer off site from a set of different servers.

Thanks for any help and advice on this topic.

Filezilla is fine.  I use CoreFTP most of the time which has almost identical features.
Speed depends on the available network connections, the program rarely affects it.  
Security 'standard' is SFTP and Filezilla and most clients (except Microsoft FTP) support it.

Of course, your FTP client must match up with the FTP server which can be a problem.  Most Linux hosts (all?) support SSH server which includes SFTP.  Windows needs a third-party program to do that but I don't know of any at them moment.  For different servers, I have connections for plain FTP, SFTP, and AuthTLS.

Hi,

In case this is a backup, you can use RSync;
