Top 10 SIEM Providers in the Q2 2016 Cybersecurity 500 List

cybersecurityventuresCyber security research and market intelligence firm Cybersecurity Ventures has released the latest iteration of its Cybersecurity 500 list, a global compilation of innovative companies providing cyber security solutions and services.

The list, which is updated quarterly, aims at creating “awareness and recognition for the most innovative cyber security companies,” according to a press release announcing the Q2 2016 update.

Unlike Gartner and Forrest reports, the Cybersecurity 500 list does not consider vendor revenue, employees, or annual growth in its rankings. “We do not think a list of the largest cyber security companies is useful to our target audience of cyber and IT security decision makers,” says Steve Morgan, founder and CEO of Cybersecurity Ventures, and Editor-in-Chief of the Cybersecurity 500 list. “[IT decision makers] already know who the biggest vendors are. Instead, we give a nod to the hottest and most innovative companies.”

Selection and ranking criteria are subjective and include some or all of the following when evaluating each company:

  • Cybersecurity Sector (market category)
  • Problem(s) solved
  • Customer Base
  • Feedback from CISOs and Decision Makers
  • Feedback from IT Security Evaluators & Recommenders
  • Feedback from VARs, SIs and Consultants
  • VC Funding
  • Company Growth
  • Published Product Reviews
  • Demos and Presentations at Conferences
  • Corporate Marketing and Branding
  • Media Coverage
  • Notable Implementations
  • Founder and Management Pedigree

We’ve combed through the list and pulled the 10 top-ranked Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)  and related technology vendors. Businesses are listed according to rank in the Cybersecurity 500 list. Businesses listed in red text also feature on our SIEM Solutions Directory, and in our free 2016 SIEM Solutions Buyer’s Guide.
