I understand that regular FTP has inferior security due to the lack of

What is your favorite alternative and why? Implicit FTPS? SFTP? FTP
over SSH? Or something else?

vsftpd is just rocking, but if I were you, I'd stick with OpenSSH. I'd
create an "sftp" group for just FTP users, and jail SSH connections
coming from users in "sftp" group into their home directory. (See
here[1] for details.)
