I use RSYNC at work also, we've got a VPN set up between site  
locations and use rsync to move data between them. We also use rsync  
internally between windows and linux boxes .. when you get the data  
to your home server you might want to consider what you do with that  
box backup-wise too.
I've been looking at encrypted filesystems for secure storage at home  
and work - the other network engineer at my work managed to build his  
own encrypted filesystem linux on a USB stick which works very nicely.

If you can get away with it bandwidth-wise encrypt your VPN as highly  
as you can, I wouldn't transfer client data over anything less than  
256bit, but maybe I'm just a little paranoid!
