Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5 Update 4
PowerShell Reference


Encryption is a Veeam Backup & Replication built-in mechanism that helps you protect your data from unauthorized access, especially if you back up sensitive VM data to offsite locations or archive it to tape.

Data encryption transforms data to a secure format with the help of a cryptographic algorithm and a secret key. The secret, or encryption keys, are stored in the Veeam backup database.
