Was checking out Safety4Data... does FileZilla have the same level of encryption or ability to do so?

Never heard of this product before.

At a first glance it looks like your typical run-of-the-mill snake oil. No technical information, no source code. Their official website is stuffed to the brim with SEO bullshit bingo aimed at fooling tech-agnostic managers and contains no actual information. Your mileage may vary, but I'd be very wary given the provided information. It reeks of a scam.

While I cannot compare a ghost product to FileZilla, I can tell you that with FTP over TLS (FTPS) and SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) FileZilla implements two standardized and publicized protocols protected by strong cryptography universally considered secure. True to Kerckhoffs's principle you can verify this yourself as we have published the source code.
