http://winscp.net/eng/docs/protocols#protocol_comparison

It appears that SCP predates SFTP, and SFTP was designed to be more
cross-platform and to standardize some aspects of the protocol that SCP
did not standardize. (for example, SCP requires a unix-like shell on the
server side where SFTP does not)
