Is there any possibility of using your own media locally - such as
tape or a large USB attached disk?    If security is such a primary
concern, I can't see sending the data to that type of offsite thing.

Get a couple of large USB SATAs and use dump(8) to back the stuff up
on them.    Write them encrypted if you need.

I'd have to agree with this... After looking at a lot of options, I ended up building a simple freebsd server and connected it to my main server on a separate ethernet port via a twisted ethernet cable. Thus, the server and backup server had a 'private', high speed connection and I can pump tons of data through that connection without paying my colo provider for that bandwidth.

A whole server, rather than a USB drive might be overkill, but its a little more flexible, and I can use the backup server for a DNS server, and a few other things, as well.
