Note: AWS Credentials will need to be updated for encrypted backups to be operational.


CloudRanger has the ability to generate backups from encrypted resources in both the origin region and copy region. When an encrypted resource is applied to a policy either by id or tag the key mapping for each resource is applied in the ‘ADDITIONAL COPIES’ section which can be accessed by clicking ‘ADVANCED’. 

Here is an example of the origin KMS key which is made available for review.  

As shown below a dropdown option is also made available to select the destination KMS key for the corresponding copy region.
