[olug] remote monitoring and remote backup server software

I'm actually thinking about just looking for a Windows
client that will either 1) sftp into my server
automatically and back up their data, or 2) encrypt
their data and ftp in.  There's a lot of software out
there for remote Windows backups, and 99% of my
clients are running Windows, so why not use what's
already running, and reliable, on my server?  With
standard ftp, my clients are going to have some very
unusual usernames and long, complicated passwords, but
that's why it's going to be automated....
No remote root logins allowed on my servers; I don't
even normally run ftp.
