I've had success with Bacula for a small office file server (FreeBSD) and
Windows clients clients.  It supports SSL for the data transfer (if the
client and server are not the same machine), as well as data encryption:

I haven't used the encryption myself.  Bacula has a bit of a learning curve
to set up corretly, but I really enjoy its use once it it set up correctly.
