VMRay Analyzer is a malware detection and analysis software. Unknown files from the Internet (e. g. downloads or e-mail attachments) are scanned in a “malware sandbox” before they are actually sent to the recipient. The ‘malware sandbox’ provides a controlled and isolated environment to observe the behavior of these files. For example, every attempt to access the local file system and every internet connection that has been set up is detected and logged. Only if no suspicious or malicious behavior is observed will the file examined in this way be forwarded to the final user.
Unlike classical virus protection, behavior-based analysis can detect not only known malware, but also completely new types of malware (“zero-day malware”). Unlike sandboxes from other manufacturers, VMRay’s hypervisor technology allows observation from “outside” the analysis environment. This makes the analysis process completely transparent to the file being examined, and it cannot take any countermeasures to disguise its maliciousness. The procedure is particularly effective against novel, complex and targeted attacks in which attackers use all available means to detect and circumvent security solutions.

We expect an independent and goal-oriented work approach from our employees, but we also want them to have fun. Our aim is to create a working environment in which everyone can be directly approached for suggestions and feedback. We want our employees to feel like they are part of a team and help them contribute to VMRay’s growth.”
WHO WOULD ENJOY WORKING AT VMRAY?
Carsten: “We are a fast-growing company and have many exciting projects. In addition to IT security and software development specialists, we are also looking for reinforcements in other areas of the company. You are right for us if you are looking for a place where you are independent and have the ability to express your own opinions. We are looking for people with a passion for solving difficult problems and developing sophisticated technologies. At VMRay you can learn from top security experts and also maintain a healthy work-life balance.”
HOW IS YOUR COMPANY ORGANIZED?
Carsten: „We implement a flat organization structure and our teams use scrum methods to organize their tasks. Over the years, we have evolved from a classic start-up into a professional company. We now have various corporate departments and specialized teams, annual strategy meetings and an Advisory Board. However, as founders, we would like to continue to be accessible to every employee, for technical discussions as well as other issues that may not be related to work. I personally very much enjoy having this direct exchange, and I am constantly gaining new insights.”
HOW DO YOU BUILD AND PROMOTE A COLLABORATIVE TEAM CULTURE AT VMRAY?
Ralf: “As an example, we organize regular team events, have a big summer party and a Christmas party as well. When a new member joins the VMRay team, we go out for a welcome dinner together. We believe that doing something together outside of work strengthens the team and this is an important part of our culture.”
WHAT ROLE DO YOU PLAY AS FOUNDERS?
Carsten: “As founders, we are role models. However, we realize that there is always room to improve in this role. In many cases we try to be transparent and explain our motivation and intentions. We are extremely proud of our team and of what we have achieved together in such a short time.”
