Install the Agent for Application & Database license on the BE media server

Ensure the BE account has SQL specific permissions such as "sa"

Create a backup job and select the SQL DB. Select the other options as appropriate in the MS SQL settings of the backup job.

Have a look @ the Admin Guide as well for the Agent for SQL chapter.
