Data Collection Methodology

A few tenants I follow for collecting and creating this data:

  • I only use public data sources
  • I evaluate each company that makes this list to make sure they are solving a cybersecurity problem
  • I personally assign the product category for each company (regardless of what their marketing says)
  • All funding and acquisition values are in U.S. dollars
  • All funding amounts are from the time of collection
