SFTP is more secure than FTP.

Unlike FTP, the SFTP protocol is packet-based instead of text-based. Where FTP might send a command such as “DELE file.txt,” SFTP would send a binary 0xBC and then “file.txt.” The key difference is that by sending less data, the SFTP protocol is faster over the long-term as less data is crossing the wire.

SFTP and FTPS implement strong algorithms like AES and Triple DES to encrypt any data transferred,
