With the FTP server in IIS7 and above, Microsoft has implemented "FTP over SSL," which will encrypt the session between an FTP program that supports FTP over SSL and the FTP server.

We have enabled this feature on the servers by default, so if your FTP program supports FTP over SSL, consult the program's help files for instructions on use or activation.
