Can the off site tape be protected using password?

Hello

I use netbackup 7.5.x and use the Netbakcup Vault option to make a second copy and send the second copy tapes to offsite for storage.

my question is

is there a way to password protect the tapes which are send offsite, reason for this question is " how to protect my data in case some one gets hold of the tapes while in transit"

regards

MBGN

You need to look at encryption options. KMS (if you have supported tape drives) is the easiest.
