VSFTP Redhat 8 File Transfer Security

I am a new user of Linux and have just set up my first RedHat box dedicated to FTP file transfers.

I am wondering about the security of the VSFTP server during login and file transfer - what's encrypted specifically.

I see there is plenty of documentation about server setup (thank you) but I don't see anything about how the server protects data that is being passed.

Can someone please give a breif description of the security VSFTP provides client machines that are using passing data through it?

Thanks very much.
