As part of her Summer Tour #NRWVierNull focusing on the progress of digital change, the Prime Minister of the German State of North Rhine-Westphalia, Hannelore Kraft, visited VMRay GmbH in Bochum on 15 July 2015.
Cyber security is an important part of the shift to digital applications and VMRay is at the cutting edge of this issue. VMRay develops software for the analysis and defense against complex cyberattacks. VMRay possesses unique capabilities to identify new malicious programs and combat them quickly and effectively, better than anything in the market today. The malware being analyzed does not notice that it is being observed, and thus cannot evade detection. This preventative solution will provide substantial savings to companies and governments from the enormous costs related to successful malware attacks. The two founders of VMRay GmbH, Dr. Carsten Willems and Dr. Ralf Hund, presented their company and technology to the Prime Minister who was extremely impressed by the demonstrated ability of VMRay to detect and block malicious PDF documents, where state-of-the art antivirus solutions failed.
