About hardware encryption

Backup Exec supports hardware encryption for storage devices that use the T10 encryption standard. When you use hardware encryption, the data is transmitted from the host computer to the target device and then encrypted on the device. Backup Exec manages the encryption keys that are used to access the encrypted data.

Backup Exec only supports approved devices for T10 encryption.
