We have some very good experiences with ProFTPd - especially the flexibility of
security configuration features/options was very helpful for us, i.e. with
virtual hosts etc., but ProFTPd should held updated even if his long history
had nearly no serious security bugs/holes. But vsftpd is nice too if the
features fit all your needs.
In case you want to switch over to sftp or ftps (if you send client binaries
out to your users) you may take a look at the famous "PuTTY" (mainly known for
his excellent windows ssh client, but not only...) programs which could easily
used as very small downloadable binaries without the need of any installation
on windows an Mac afaik too. Putty is available for win, mac and others as Open
Source and very spreaden and reviewed too.
Not shure how you may bundle it with your preconfigurations for your users.
just my two cents here...
