VPS daily backup and send to local computer

Hi everyone, I have a VPS running with WHM/CPANEL installed on it.
I configured the "legacy backup" of WHM to create full backup of all accounts and databases under /backup directory.

My boss want me also to send the generated backup into our local machine as a double backup using cron. I'm just wondering on how to do it.

Any suggestion?

By the way I'm running CentOS 6.4

if your local system is running on Linux you could easily setup an FTP cron job. Most hosting providers provide a remote place to put backups or some sort of backup solution for their VPS. I know GoDaddy has a $5.00/month ftp storage location for this sort of thing.
