Does Backup Exec 2010R3's encryption meet the NIST 800-111 Standards? If so, are there any specific configurations I need to do to set this up?

BE does support encryption but nothing is mentioned on NIST in the SCL or Admin Guide...

Backup Exec Supports Software supports a variety of data Encryption methods -

AES 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and 256-bit AES
Hardware encryption using the T10 standard requires 256-bit AES
FIPS validated 256-bit AES encryption (CMVP validation)

However, there is no mention about NIST 800-111 anywhere in te documentation as aready mentioned by Craig.
