Are remote access VPNs more vulnerable to ransomware attacks?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi there. I have heard that remote access VPNs pose more of a risk to being attacked by ransomware than other types of VPNs. Apparently this is because this type of VPN requires VPN server exposure on the internet. Does anyone know if this is true? Thanks in advance.

There's a lot of misinformation floating around on the internet about whether or not remote-access VPNs are more vulnerable to ransomware attacks. The answer is that it depends. If you have a remote access VPN and use it with a reputable company, then your chances of getting attacked by ransomware attacks are lean. However, using a remote access VPN with an insecure provider, you risk having your data compromised and blackmailed by cyber criminals. All in all, remote access VPNs are more vulnerable to ransomware attacks.
