Provide password encryption for ArcGIS Server backup parameters

I have a standalone instance of ArcGIS Server.  In order to create a backup, I have to run c:\program files\arcgis\server\tools\admin\ and provide an administrator ID and password.  If I want to schedule this backup, there is no way to hide this password from other users on the machine. 

The webgisdr utility used in Portal for ArcGIS allows me to enter a password into  that gets encrypted when I run webgisdr.

I would like to see a similar option to encrypt the password provided to in ArcGIS Server.
