I'm the IT guy for a small non-profit. We've been using VEB for about a year now, with great happiness. I couldn't believe I found a backup solution like VEB for free. We backup internal HDDs on laptops to an external USB3 drive. Couple it with TrueCrypt and a PowerShell script, it works good for non-tech end-users, and eliminates risk if someone accidentally loses their backup drive (or laptop, for that matter).
Now I see that VAW has "source-side encryption". Does that really mean you intend that I could leave TC behind, and my backups would be encrypted on the external USB drive? (I've asked for more details on the encryption & keys in another thread). And with USB auto-eject (CryptoWall protection, which I currently implement with my PowerShell script), it looks like I could just use VAW and get the same solution? Solution, in a nutshell, is: encrypted backup of internal HDD to external USB drive, with rotating the drives among users.
I'm slack-jawed that this might be true, so asking out of paranoia, probably.
