If you are like most organizations, then your FTP server accepts file uploads from both internal users (employees) and external users (customers and business partners). In addition to ensuring that data is transmitted securely via encrypted protocols such as FTPS and/or PGP, you should also take measures to verify that the data received does not contain a virus or trojan.

Recently, Oracle Security Alert for CVE-2010-4476 was released to fix a Denial of Service issue with the Java Runtime Environment.
Public Key Authentication (PKA) is a more secure way to authenticate to a server than just using passwords. If you're security conscious (and who shouldn't be?) you'll want to enable it on your server for SFTP. Using PKA involves a little more effort during the set up phase than just passwords, but it's worth it for the added security.
This video shows how to set up and use OpenPGP in JSCAPE MFT Server. OpenPGP allows you to encrypt and decrypt files for increased security. If you haven't already, you may want to watch Installing Additional Libraries Needed for OpenPGP/SFTP Ciphers on JSCAPE MFT Server.
