Today AMTSO learned that NSS Labs has applied to have its lawsuit against AMTSO and several AMTSO members dismissed. A statement from NSS Labs is available here.

“While AMTSO welcomes NSS Lab’s decision to dismiss, its actions were disruptive, expensive, and without merit,” said Ian McShane, AMTSO Board Member and Senior Director of Security Products at Elastic. “However, we agree with its statement that ‘sunshine is the best disinfectant,’ and we’re looking forward to NSS Labs re-joining AMTSO, and to its voluntary participation in standard-based testing. We believe this will give customers a greater assurance that the tests were conducted fairly.”
