Are VPNs useful for preventing maze ransomware attacks?

Asked a year ago

Hi there. I have recently learnt about maze ransomware and how it goes further than regular ransomware attacks by uploading files into the dark web. Since I have a Windows-operated system, which is apparently a target for these types of attacks, I am looking for ways to protect my system. Does anyone know if a VPN is useful in this regard? TYIA.

VPNs help prevent maze ransomware attacks because they allow users to mask their IP addresses and protect them from being identified by others. In addition, VPNs can also be used to encrypt data for added security. Both these things are an ideal way to stop the breachers from accessing and encrypting your device files. Even if they got access to the information, the encrypted data would be absolute gibberish for them that they could never decipher.
