The methodology used to rank big data security solutions companies involved the use of extensive secondary research to identify key vendors by referring to annual reports, press releases, investor presentations, white papers, and various related directories and databases. 25 key vendors were shortlisted on the basis of their breadth of product offerings, organization size, and other criteria. The scores and weights for shortlisted vendors against each parameter were finalized post research.  After the ratings were finalized, each vendor was placed in respective quadrants based on their score in the product offering and business strategy parameters.
