WS_FTP Pro Review

Fernando Ortega
A fast FTP client
A review of WS_FTP Pro by Fernando Ortega

WS-FTP Pro is a professional FTP client which features the most basic functions any FTP client should. It supports 256-bit AES encryption and FIPS 140-2 validated cryptography, basic uploading and downloading functions. It certainly isn't the prettiest looking interfaces out there, but it's basic and easy to navigate. WS-FTP is suitable for power users who have hefty tasks to complete.

WS_FTP Pro can connect to sFTP servers, backup to FTP and edit PHP files.

WS_FTP Pro features and highlights:
  • Simple: WS_FTP Professional is quick to install and very easy to use.
  • Flexible: Transfer files over FTP, SSL, SSH, and HTTP/S transfer protocols.
  • Secure: Protect files before, during, and after transfer. Unmatched security is provided through 256-bit AES encryption, FIPS 140-2 validated cryptography, OpenPGP file encryption, and file integrity validation up to SHA-512.
  • Compliant: Enables compliance with regulations and corporate governance requirements.
  • Automated: Simplify tasks and enhance productivity with built-in capabilities such as email notification, backup, synchronization, compression, post-transfer events, and scheduling of transfers.

WS-FTP Pro is licensed as Shareware for the Windows operating system / platform from ftp clients and can be used as a free trial until the trial period ends (after an unspecified number of days). The WS-FTP Pro 12.6.0 demo is available to all software users as a free download with potential restrictions and is not necessarily the download of the full version.
