By KVM if you mean Linux Kernal-based Virtual Machine... .BE does not have any specific agent for this.

If it is a Linux machine, you could however backup the contents using a Backup Exec 2012 Agent for Linux (subject to confirmation that the Linux version is present in Backup Exec Software Compatibility List)

Yes,Linux Kernal-based Virtual Machine,mb NetBackup can solve this?

Backup Exec Agent for Linux is not designed for disaster recovery purpose. So using an Agent for Linux, you will onlly be able to backup flat files from the linux box.
