File and folder syncronization solution

Storage
Hello everyone, I'm looking for some suggestions from in choosing a file/folder synchronization application that workS well over WAN links. I have several locations that I need to replicate data to my datacenter for backup. Currently we FTP a compressed copy, but the time frame to move all this data is starting to pose issues with the backup window. Would like to have a cost conscious, secure, centrally managed, bandwidth throttled (maybe use BITS) solution. Any help would be appreciated, but would like to hear from people currently using this type of solution. Thanks!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I have a client that uses PeerSync from Peer Software peersoftware.com.

It does exactly what you are describing and it will not break the bank.

    Thanks for your reply madkahuna I've looked at Peer software but with all the connection lic, I'll end up spending 3 to 4 thousand. I was hoping to get a viable solution to run on approx 20 machines for under that. Since I work for a non profit, I was hoping for around $1000.

    Thanks all for your help. Looks like an enterprise application is going to have to wait till next fiscal year's budget. Repliweb was going to cost approx $3000 which included the nonprofit discount. Brightstore High availability while an incredible product, it requires the full app to be installed on each server at a cost of $1500 each. In my case, this software would be almost $11000. Looks like I'm going to use a product temporarily called Super Flexible File Synchronizer Pro from http://www.superflexible.com/ until I can get an enterprise application. If anyone has any suggestion I still would like to hear it. Thanks again!
