I assume your approach would be one full and the rest incremental backups.
For this purpose you can get one of Symantec, Acronis, Shadow Protect, Parafon backup tools and let them backup your data.
As hardware backup solution Barracuda backup or simmilar would suit for your needs.

I tried Symantec but external USB hard drive not good if more than 2TB!

I have few external hard disk(USB 3) which I can connect as required (Daily, weekly, monthly) once it's labelled/configured on backup software!

Barracuda backup hardware is like external USB or like tape drive?

I backup 50tb with Syncback.   You can get pretty precise about your backups.   I've used it for about 10 years and couldn't be happier.    It can be configured to automatically detect that a drive was connected and run backups automatically.     I run it on Server 2012R2 and backup data on the server, other data on the LAN and from web based servers.

Why to external USB and not to an offsite or cloud service?

I  believe Intronis (web-based backup system) will allow you to take an initial snapshot manually to disk, then replicate the daily/whatever-interval backups directly over the web.

The fastest way to backup that amount of data would be using a bit-level backup like Storagecraft ShadowProtect.  It will still be a bit slow, I think, writing to a USB drive, but it would be a lot faster than a file level backup like Backup Exec.  Storagecraft is designed to backup directly to an internal hard drive and then can be configured to mirror that backup to external USB or other type of storage.  It can, however, be configured to write directly to an external drive if required.

We like the Datto solutions and offer solutions based on Asigra and eVault.   Keep in mind that USB is slow.  Recovery tops out at ~3GB per minute.  

We have solutions that can restore at ~30-35GB per minute and/or provide a virtual recovery environment that can have you up and running within minutes.

Instant recovery is built into the Datto Siris appliances and service.  

We partner to provide RestartIT.  It's offsite backup but instead of shipping USB drives for large recovery, we ship a full mobile vault.  A server with your encrypted data.  You plug it into your betwork and restore at speed based on SATA arrays and gigabit Ethernet instead of USB 3.
