As the Backup Exec (tm) Server service is started, it creates a ServiceConnectionPoint (SCP) in the Active Directory  

The ServiceConnectionPoint is used for publishing and locating services. The ServiceConnectionPoint objects allow Backup Exec to use the Active Directory to find and connect to remote resources. These objects are created automatically and will not cause any issue with the Active Directory.

For more information on service connection points, see the following links:

It's a backup utility and my understanding is that the connection point is placed in active directory when the Bakup exec service is installed.  I don't use Backup exec myself so I don't have any more detail.  Here is a link to the Symantec backup exec site.
