I'm no expert with vsftpd but I see this in a config file:

# Allow anonymous FTP? (Beware - allowed by default if you comment this out).

We use proftpd mostly (for mirrors and other services) which is sort of the 
apache of FTP servers (very flexible, tons of optional modules, somewhat 
heavy but not that much) and we're very happy with it.

There's also pure-ftpd which is lighter on resources (so I've heard) but I 
have no direct experience with it.
