Backup encryption more costly

Do backup software charge more money to encrypt the backup file or is that generally a service that can be expected for the regular backup service?

thanks

>>in the USA there are export restrictions for certain encryption standards, which may have an impact on the price for your backup application if you're buying from outside the USA.

the backup would be in usa and never sent outside the country... so AES 256 is best, right?

legato is asking for higher price to encrypt, along with the backup, and hence the question.

Well, if you can afford it....buy it.

what do you suggest for SQL Server?
what exactly are your needs? corporate, number of dbs, etc.
what features are you looking for
I understood from your statement that legato networker is costly. the need is to run sql backups on 30 databases every night on three server.
