We use OpenVPN to provide network level security in a backup system
which is superficially similar to yours.

Typically we're backing up about a hundred GBytes.  Even if it takes a
couple of months for the process to complete (which can happen if the
users are especially, er, well, willful:) rsync doesn't give problems.
Can't say the same for OpenVPN unfortunately but a watchdog fixes that.
We're still using cygwin 1.5.
