Hi there

 

Backup Exec supports two security levels of encryption: 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and 256-bit AES. The 256-bit AES encryption provides a stronger level of security because the key is longer for 256-bit AES than for 128-bit AES. However, 128-bit AES encryption enables backup jobs to process more quickly. Hardware encryption using the T10 standard requires 256-bit AES

AES encryption, with a per-job choice of either 128-bit or 256-bit.
