We are at least going to try the 7zip idea, and are actively researching to what utilities are available for our tape drive (Dell LTO6).

Basically you enable the library managed encryption option on the library via a key, and install EKM (OK, that's a simplified version, but it's not terribly complex). The EKM server can support multiple libraries so that tapes can be easily moved between libraries so it's a pretty decent solution. Let us know what you find out.

I've heard people trying everything from using 7zip (compression turned off) to encrypt the backup files once they are complete to some people resorting to just sticking around with BackupExec (yuck). Anyone had any luck using a given utility to activate encryption on their drive full time?

Please be aware that you have the ability to use hardware-based encryption provided by the library.
