One potential thing encryption can guard against is theft of the database backup tapes. If the database backup tapes and the application server backup tapes are kept and stored in different locations, it is conceivable that someone could steal a database backup tape and thus obtain a copy of the database without a copy of your application. In this case, encryption could be a benefit.
