No. Not at the moment.  BE 2010 R3 SP3 which will support ESX 5.1 is currently in beta and GA is expected to be in July.

Symantec recently released beta version of Backup Exec 2012 R3 SP3.Check the link: you'll need to  login to your account to download copies for 32 and 64 bit. Mind you this version only work on Windows 2012 as agent if you wish to install backup exec agent without going through upgrade process use Backup Exec 2010 R2 pusing backupexec agent to Windows 2012 server is pretty straight forward.
