Folder Encryption Software

I have been exploring various Folder Lock software applications  -- AxCrypt / CertainSafe / …
They all seem to be able to encrypt at folder level / file level – some allow for 2FA
My Question:
If our network is compromised  -  TeslaCrypt, CTB-Locker, …
Will folder encryption reduce our potential Rasomware Data Breach exposure?
The answer is of course yes but is that a false sense of security knowing that users could access protected folders  by  providing password credentials from a compromised system.

Assume we have a robust Backup program in place - including Air Gapped -- and that the reason for encryption is to minimize potential Ransomware Data Dumps

Thanks – Dan
