SSH for Windows
I was recently pointed to an OpenSSH installer for Windows. This includes both the clients (ssh, scp) and a server (ssh shell server, and scp/sftp server). It also adds the clients to your path for you so you can use them from the command line. Unfortunately for your servers, Windows 2003 is not supported yet, but they are working on it. Are you still using insecure FTP?
There are some other ssh clients for windows including putty, Tectia, and you can always install cygwin. These solutions also have scp/sftp clients. I have found FileZilla to be a good scp/sftp client.
I have to say however, I have never been totally happy working with ssh on windows. I can't really put my finger on it, but nothing seams to work quite right.

VanDyke also has an SSH server but it's stupid expensive.
We've ran it for several years on 2000 and now on 2003 Enterprise. It is not very expensive (under $100) and is supported by a great team of programmers in Eastern Europe.
They have a great windows SSH2 server and a command line sftp tool. The personal edition is free
