VPN would allow you to not port-forward that port, but make it only available via port 22. Another option that would work OK that I just thought of (I don't think anything would be a problem).

Shared Folder Sync A -> B(1)
B(1) locally Time Backs Up to B(2)

This way, you send the data over the public internet safely. HOWEVER, you won't be able to restore a file quickly via A, you'll have to login to B and somehow get that file another way.

VPN is probably the best way.

I would definitely use VPN if Synology's VPN client could connect using a key file. Now I can't since my remote router only supports that kind of authentication for OpenVPN.
