Hello, Based on the Software


Based on the Software Compatibility List of Backup Exec 2014, Exchange 2013 is supported. The following Service Pack/Cumulative Update for Exchange 2013 is supported by Backup Exec 2014: 
1. Cumulative Update 3 (CU3)
2. Cumulative Update 5 (CU5)
3. Cumulative Update 6 (CU6)
4. Cumulative Update 7 (CU7)
5. Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Please refer to the Backup Exe 2014 Software Compatibility List for more details. 

I'd suggest you go for Backup Exec 15 as that adds support to Exchange 2013 CU8 and CU9. (Backup Exec 15 Software Compaitbility List)
