I do not believe at present you can password protect Veeam Backup Files as of v5.01, but this feature has been requested by customers, and maybe be incorporated in later versions of the product.

This has been requested by users, that want to send there backups for off-site storage outside of the company on the internet.

Axantum (http://www.axantum.com/axcrypt/) and TrueCrypt (http://www.truecrypt.org/) are the best free tools out there, though I can't comment on their functionality as I've not used them (we use whole disk encyption software). You might plug the Storage EE Zone to see what those guys/gals suggest.

Just wanted to add to this - I "ping'd" Veeam dev's on this, and they don't have plans for pwd protection, but rather encryption. They don't have a planned release date.
