Pros: Good FTP client. Site management is easy because there is just one file to update to add all your sites. Site by site configuration is very handy.

Cons: Costs too much. Granted this is a one-time expense, but with the other freeware tools that are out there and using this for a work computer that regularly gets replaced and needs a new license this tool was just too much of a hassle.

Pros: Its the best tool out there as it has a lot of features and works fast. I have not had any issues with this software as it is truly an enterprise solution.

Cons: I would like to see a mobile app created for filezilla by IPSwitch software. This wouldnt be to transfer as much to simply be able to download and view contents for my personal media library

Pros: It is very easy to adapt to security protocols, I highly recommend its use in cPanel, it makes the transfer of files very fast.

Cons: The learning curve is a little tedious, although other free ftp systems are on the market, ws_ftp is still one of my favorite tools.

Pros: I used IPSwitch WS_FTP Professional for many years, and it was easy to use and my favorite thing about it was a train noise that sounded after the file transfer was completed.

Cons: After using it for many years, it stopped working and I couldn't figure out what the problem was, and I was told I had to upgrade the version. At that point, I switched to filezilla because it was free, but I do miss that train sound.

Easy to use. Support is always quick and responsive. Scripting is easy to use.

Pros: Site manager can share saved sites to network locations, customizable to different site types and security requirements.

Cons: Clearing the logs is not intuitive. No way to script out current site connection or activity. Took a little while to learn the app.

Overall: Simple, configurable, script capable.
