SSH Server for Windows


I enhance an application I developed, and as part of the new features, my application has to communicate with remote Windows and run some local CMD commands (on remote host).
I tend to use SSH connection since it's considered secured enough. That means I have to embed SSH client on application (already done) and it has to connect to SSH server on the other side.

I have doubts whether to provide my own SSH server application or ask my customers to purchase a 3rd-party SSH server (like bitvise and others). I'm curious to know what SSH server for Windows is considered to be the best these days? Which one is the most popular today?
I prefer not to support too many SSH server vendors but recommend my users to use a certain one.
Since it could be that some of my customers are already using a SSH server, I'm trying to point to the most common one.

Thank you!
