Windows to Linux ssh backup?

I was wondering if there is an SSH client that will let me set up automated backups of windows computers to a Linux server via SSH. I am willing to pay for software if no free software will do it.

Your command should be something like:

rsync -av --progress -e ssh /cygdrive/c/
