I don't know, but can the program you have in mind open and read an encrypted backup file?

The story at the link posted by the OP gives some technical details and makes some comparisons. A lot of it was over my head. I assume RIM would have good explanations for why it did things the way it did, but some of it makes you wonder. For example the Desktop Manager encryption algorithm makes one pass -- whatever that means, exactly -- while other products make multiple passes, which sounds better, but I have no idea.
