Personally, if it's file transfer I'd recommend SFTP (file transfer
over SSH) every time.

SFTP is really for interactive transfer by humans. For programmatic
transfer, use SCP.

It’s all part of SSH anyway.

/usr/bin/sftp is not especially good for programmatic use; the SFTP
protocol on the other hand is pretty good for it.
