Backup Exec 16 protect tapes - encrypt or password

I have a small single server site with Backup Exec 16 where tapes are taken offsite.  I want to protect the tapes if they are lost/stolen.  How can I restrict the tapes so files cannot be restored unless they have a password or some encryption key?

create encryption key and then use hardware encryption so that data is encrypted on the tape. Keep the pass phrase safe so that you can do the restore. Refer below link for more details
