I noticed that as Veeam Endpoint Backup run through the process, there's a step that states that the "network traffic will be encrypted". I've been testing running Veeam EBU Free from a remote location over VPN to my local Veeam B&R backup infrastructure. Is this only because I am targeting Veeam B&R for backup location or will it encrypt network traffic even if it backs-up to a network share? I tested connectivity without a VPN and I was also able to get a backup going however decided against it since I wasn't sure the backup would be encrypted in transit outside a VPN. Could someone confirm if the backup traffic is ALWAYS encrypted, whether via network share or with Veeam B&R as a target destination?
