Hummm, you want the short answer? Don't enable ftp :)

Ftp only accepts plain text passwords (until you enable things like
kerebos, one time password, etc), so it is not, it cannot be, secure.

SFTP is there, working easily, ready to use, with a decent Windows
client WinSCP (winscp.net)

Best regards,
