VMRay GmbH, a Bochum, Germany-based provider of malware analysis software, closed a seed financing round of undisclosed amount.
Backers included High-Tech Gruenderfonds (HTGF).
The company intends to use the funds for the development and marketing of the software.
Founded in September 2013 by Dr. Carsten Willems und Dr. Ralf Hund, VMRay provides a malware analysis software, which is suited for the investigation of malware such as computer viruses or worms, trojans or spyware and has a special focus on complex APTs and dangerous 64-Bit kernel rootkits.
The process completely separates the infected system from the analytical system. The malware, which otherwise would stop working when noticing that it is being inspected, is not aware that it is being analyzed, and therefore can be investigated by VMRay in depth.
